our identity and movement

Mosaic Lincoln is an ecumenical (i.e. promoting unity among the world’s Christian Churches) and interdenominational church. We are a collective of participants entering God’s rest as a refuge of wholeness and stability. Through our shared relationships, worship gatherings and presence to others on tessera weekends we receive and embody Jesus’ good and beautiful presence.

We know every day in our community and around the world, people experience prejudice that takes a variety of forms ranging from implicit bias to explicit hatred. We grieve the fact that all too often, religion is a vehicle for this prejudice.

At Mosaic, we acknowledge this reality, and collectively seek to understand the experiences of those impacted. Do we have it figured out? No. Will we get things wrong? Yes. But as a community, we commit to leading with love to cultivate peaceful spaces within our church family, our neighborhoods, and our shared networks where people can experience the restoration of Jesus together. Our unity as a local church is kept by the power of the Holy Spirit even in the midst of our differences leading to welcome and cooperation with one another and Christ. We are a people desiring to abide with and follow Jesus and we welcome you to participate in our church family.

SUNDAY GATHERINGS

1st, 3rd, & 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 may 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 | Presence, participation, and practice
tessera: a small block of stone, tile, glass, or other material used in the construction of a mosaic.
 
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 of Jesus requires slowing down, getting small, and being present 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. At Mosaic, we believe in the sacred being fully at home in the mundane.

On Tessera Sunday weekends we do not gather as a whole church family, but we all participate in opening space for one another as we all become hosts to others 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. This is our practice.

We invite you to reach out to us if you’d like to talk with any of our leadership about Tessera Sunday weekend movement.

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 represented in 4 environments (nursery, pre-K, K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade) 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].
