SUNDAY GATHERINGS

Aug 15 & 29
10am @ City Impact, 1035 N 33rd St

Receiving and extending the grace of God

Mosaic Lincoln is a community following Jesus in practicing rhythms of grace to bring renewal to a weary and burdened world. Our desire is to come together as a people unencumbered by the cultural and religious expectations of our time. Instead, we will focus on receiving and extending the grace of God. 

Our hope is to work together to cultivate safe spaces within our church family, our neighborhoods and our shared networks where people can lean into each other’s stories and experience the restoration of Jesus together.

SUNDAY GATHERINGS

1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays

Mosaic gatherings are designed to be personal, engaging, inspiring, honest and life-giving. Whether you are a passionate believer or a hopeful skeptic, our goal is to create a space where you can come as you are and encounter God’s grace, where you can engage God’s Story within the scriptures and among friends; a place where you feel comfortable inviting others who many not believe as you do.

You’ll meet real people on a journey of not just knowing God but loving our city in radical ways.

Mosaic is a place where you will be invited to grow in an awareness of God’s presence so that your life can be oriented away from self and toward a love for God and love for neighbor. As we gather to practice situating our lives in God’s life our hearts move from restlessness to rest. Although our lives may not always be more certain about God, we know they are more stable in him.

Tessera Sunday Weekends

2nd & 4th Sundays
tessera: a small block of stone, tile, glass, or other material used in the construction of a mosaic.
 

Each piece is unique. Each piece is broken. Each piece is filled with hope as a part of the whole. Our lives are like pieces of tessera in that they each tell stories of brokenness and hope. We believe in the power of these stories being intentionally shared together.

To be formed within the rescue, love and faithfulness of Jesus requires slowing down, getting small, and leaning in to each other’s stories. Unfortunately, it’s often possible to keep busy with a flurry of church activity and programming that we avoid these kinds of movements. It’s possible to be swimming in ministry real estate and resources while missing out on all the ways God is at work in our lives in ordinary and everyday spaces.

On Tessera Sunday weekends we do not gather as a whole church family at City Impact, but we all open space for one another in the Mosaic family as we all become hosts to one another in simple places like living rooms, patios, shared tables, along paths, and so much more. Some people choose to cultivate Tessera families that become the same group of people that gather on Tessera Sunday weekends. Others choose to cultivate Tessera circles that look unique and different each time. There is no right or wrong way to lean in to this movement.

We invite you to reach out to us if you’d like to talk with any of our leadership about Tessera Sunday weekend movement. If you sign-up to be on our email list, each Tessera Sunday weekend we send out ideas and possibilities for your time with one another including materials for children.

TEACHINGS

One of the primary elements of our weekly worship gatherings is exploring the scriptures. Together as a community of faith we seek to faithfully interpret and apply these ancient texts to the realities of twenty-first century life. We do this because we believe God is present with us, that God’s Story is continually unfolding all around us and that he is still renewing all of creation and inviting us to participate.

What if ‘church’ could be your kids’ favorite place?

Mosaic Kids is an exciting, safe and lively environment where children can discover and experience God’s love. Our awesome Mosaic Kids team provides learning experiences filled with music, games, crafts and relevant messages that will stick with children through the week. Our goal is to make sure each child feels loved and discovers God’s love.

All of our volunteers are screened and trained, and we provide a secure check-in system. To connect, please email [email protected]
