Have you recently joined the Mosaic Community? Perhaps over the fall or within the last few weeks? We want to invite you to a luncheon on March 18th to get to know you better. It will take place after the gathering at Mosaic and lunch is provided. We also want to welcome anyone who has never joined us for a welcome to mosaic class. We'll see you there! Email [email protected] to rsvp.
If you call Mosaic home, please join us March 25th, after the morning Gathering, for a lunch and stories from the 2018 commitment teams. Each team will share an update on their goals for the year. We'll also be discussing our 2018 budget, Stakeholders role this year, and how new people can get involved. Lunch and childcare will be provided.
Join us for a day of Service on April 15th at Wilson Elementary School. We will be working the grounds of the school doing planter building, painting, trash clean up and much more. Bring the family. We will NOT be meeting at Mosaic but will meet at Wilson Elementary in Richmond for our gathering.
This month, Mosaic is partnering with Project peace. The next "Day of Service" is Feb 24th from 9am-noon.
Go to the website (projectpeaceeastbay.org) to sign up and you can view the various projects and organizations. Projects include: cleaning up schools, sorting through books at schools, putting together furniture for local shelter, making and distributing food at shelters/ schools, gardening or painting at shelters/ schools. etc.
We're asking everyone in our community to share at least 3 meals over the next 3 months with the same group of people. The idea is that 3-4 individuals and/or families would eat together at least once each of the next three months. If you're interested in hosting or participating, please contact [email protected].
Mark your calendars for January 27th and join us for the Leadership Advance. We are coming together to set a course for 2018.

Meals and childcare will be provided.* A suggested donation of $15 per adult is encouraged and appreciated.
*We are encouraging parents to try and find their own childcare for the morning but if you need to bring your children, please contact [email protected], to sign your child up.

Water Baptism is a unique way to express to those around you, the commitment you've made to serve God. It's an outward expression of faith and renewal. On October 1st, after the morning gathering, Mosaic will have a water baptism. If you're interested in being baptized, please contact [email protected]
At Mosaic, we value renewal, no matter your age. We love to celebrate new life and the chance to dedicate our time and efforts into raising our children with Godly love and influence. One expression of this is through a baby/child dedication. If you'd like to share this renewal with our community, we are having a dedication ceremony on April 23rd, during our morning Gathering. If you have a newborn or a 10 year old (age doesn't matter) and you'd like to participate in this ceremony, please contact [email protected]osaicbay.org for more information and to sign up.
Mosaic is hosting a 'Welcome to Mosaic' class on Oct 16th immediately following the gathering. We take this time to hear your story and share more of the vision of our church. If you're new to Mosaic or have never attended the class, we'd love for you to join us. Lunch and childcare will be provided. Please RSVP to [email protected]
In Jesus' day, when people decided to make a significant change in their spiritual lives, they weren't asked to say a secret prayer at the end of a church service, they didn't walk the aisle of a stadium during an alter call, and they never simply raised their hands while everyone else's heads were bowed and eyes were closed.
No, in Jesus' day, people were baptized.
Baptism today is the church's way of publicly announcing a person's commitment to Christ. If you want to get baptized or have any questions about baptism, please contact [email protected] and join us Sunday, Oct 9th.
