Eternal Life Begins Now
Beginning this week, we start our journey toward the cross, knowing that we will not only encounter the grace of Christ there but find an invitation into a Kingdom life that is not of this world. I look forward to taking the journey with you, and pray that we will all have eyes to see what God is doing so we can join him.

Revival Runs on the Track of Relationships
Mosaic's community spent last weekend (March 3-5) together at Hickory Knob State Park. The retreat offered us all much needed rest and a time of sweet communion. This is what community is all about. It's about being together, seeking God together, growing together, and simply having fun! Revival is born and bred in deep relationships centered around the love of God and his mission in the world. So check out this message, and consider how you can bring revival home.

Epic Youth Sunday
This week, we are led in worship by our Epic Students. They have been hard at work preparing, and are excited to share their gifts with you. Taylor Williams, our student pastor, will bring us a special message through Matthew 25, and fresh vision and call for us to lean into intergenerational ministry. We are called to be unstuck, unafraid, and unleashed to pour into each other's lives and go after all God has for the whole body of believers.
Come with an expectant heart and be ready for a wonderful time of worship together

Worship that Extends the Heart of God
Can I just say ... last Sunday was beautiful! To hear so many deeply hopeful prophetic words spoken over individuals and our community as a whole ... just wow. We were called into hope, into deeper commitment, into hospitality, into remembrance and celebration. We were challenged not to be afraid that God might show up (what a word!), and encouraged that God is building a people of power. It was a special morning. Thank you for leaning in and trusting God to speak. This Sunday, we reach into the very heart of God as we explore God's love for all people. We will worship and adore him, then cry out on behalf of some of our precious ministries. I anticipate another powerful move of God, and look forward to joining you there.

Worship That Expects
This week, we continue our series on the Art of Worship with a message on what it means to worship and pray in expectation - in expectation of God's dreams for us individually and corporately to be realized, in expectation of miracles to happen and for breakthrough to be a real thing for real people. And most of all, that the supernatural presence of God meet us where we are and draw us into a new, deeper reality.

Worship as a Sacrifice
When we worship, are we simply offering a grateful heart to God, or are we stepping intentionally into His heavenly realm? Faith in worship moves us from a church sanctuary into the heavenly realms. Come join us as we learn to take that step in a deeper way.
Worship: Gratitude and Confession
In these first weeks of 2023, we are taking time to focus on the art of worship. That means taking a closer look at our usual "routines" on Sunday morning, asking ourselves how they not only feed our souls but feed into the heart of God. This week, we will listen more closely to the practices of confession and gratitude, noticing how those elements prepare our spirits for worship and right-size our egos. How do you walk into worship? What do you bring with you, spiritually speaking? What gets left at the altar? And how does that impact your walk with Christ? Let's explore together the practices that rightly humble our hearts before a magnificent, wise and powerful, beautiful God. ~ Carolyn

Treasuring His Presence
Worship is the centerpiece of Christian community, yet we often put this part of our lives on auto-pilot. We come to a building every week, do the things prescribed by those leading us, then go home without thinking much at all about the fact that we've just engaged in a transcendent experience. But what is it, exactly, that we do on Sunday mornings, and is that "worship"? What makes it worship? What does it mean to stand in awe as a witness to the work of a magnificent God? This Sunday, we will begin there, with transcendence. We will explore together what God has created us to do, if indeed we are designed to glorify God and enjoy him forever. I can't wait to experiment and experience together the art of worship. ~ Carolyn
This Sunday, we welcome Peter Pereira, our long-time mission partner and friend. Peter and Esther have spent their ministry serving Christ both in the U.S. and southeast Asia, where they care especially for those in poverty through basic needs, education, vocational and leadership training. Their work is deeply rooted in a hunger to see every person come to know life and truth through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Peter has been a particularly strong voice in our ministry, speaking encouragement into our community. This Sunday, he will bring a prophetic word around unleashing, freedom, and how God is using both women and men to spread the good news. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
