Mosaic is the art of creating images with broken pieces: it’s a rough surface where a multitude of ordinary tones and textures, shapes and sizes are pieced together to create something beautiful. In a culture of countless stories and transient neighbors, we think worship should be a little like a mosaic: we all bring a piece of ourselves—our own uniquely shaped stories, intellects, creativity, desires, spirituality, and needs, and we come together to create imago Dei—the image of God—in community.
This is worship for folks unfamiliar or disenfranchised with religious practice; it’s also for people comfortable in their faith tradition and eager to encounter God in a new way.
This is worship for artisans who function creatively, through visual arts, music, or other creative expressions; it’s also for those intrigued by difficult questions and unafraid of the rocky borderland where questions of faith meet science and culture.
This is worship for introverts who find God in the quiet of their meditations, and for the extroverts who find God in song, laughter, and new friendship.
This is Mosaic. We meet on Saturday evenings for an hour to worship and think about God through contemplative music, scripture, teaching, and creative expression.
We hope you’ll join us.
