In-Person Gatherings Returning on June 21st

Mosaic Family, throughout COVID-19, we’ve been actively engaging with every resource available to make informed decisions about Mosaic’s own reopening plan.

With much prayer and discussion amongst our Elders and our reopening team, we’ve decided to do a soft opening of in-person gatherings on June 21st at 9:02am and 11:17am at our Winter Garden Campus and 7:02pm at our WDW campus with reduced capacity and some additional guidelines as we slowly move towards the Mosaic Sunday gathering experience as we know and love it.

For now, we will be asking that everyone RSVP for the gathering they plan on attending. This will help us facilitate fellowship with social distancing.

We are asking that everyone wear face coverings throughout the duration of their time in the lobby as well as during worship in the gathering, since these are both times when we tend to move about and project our voices which makes social distancing a little more difficult to monitor. You are welcome to remove your face covering during the message and announcement portion of the gathering. However, we would like to ask that you put your face covering back on as you exit through the lobby and leave the building. (We will also have a section in the back of the sanctuary for people who want to keep their face coverings on for the entirety of the gathering and remain by others who are doing the same.)

If a health restriction prevents you from safely wearing a face covering, we understand and want you to be safe. Please explain your need briefly upon entering.

Mosaic Kids won’t be available for now, but activity packets for kids will be available for families to pick up before entering the sanctuary. You can also continue to find the weekly Kids videos (full of worship, a lesson, and familiar faces) on our website. We encourage you to watch these with your kids and use them to jumpstart memorable Gospel moments and conversations!

We also won’t be providing coffee or other refreshments just yet, but you are more than welcome to bring your own from home.

At the Winter Garden campus, the back doors to the lobby from the parking lot (curved hallway) will be open so you can enter and exit the sanctuary quickly and easily if you’d like to avoid lobby interaction and move quickly from your car to the sanctuary seats.

We are still finalizing some details related to all of this and will be updating our website accordingly on Tuesday, June 16th with everything you’ll need to know, including registration forms for each gathering to spread out attendance.

Thank you for continuing to be patient and encouraging to our staff and one another as things continue to change as re-opening phases move forward and local and federal government remove restrictions.

Online Gatherings Continuing Via Live Stream

Mosaic has been live-streaming our gatherings for nearly ten years now for those who are unable to attend in-person. Because of that, we were uniquely ready to be “online-only” for a season with the change of being able to prep our gatherings before Sunday so that they could be on-demand by Sunday morning.

As we go back to live Sunday gatherings, we’ll also be transitioning back from releasing a prerecorded, on-demand gathering experience on Sunday morning to live streaming it for our Winter Garden campus on our website on Sundays at 9:02am, 11:17am, and 4:32pm and for our Walt Disney World campus via Facebook Live at 8:15pm. (The gathering will be available on our website and podcast for an on-demand viewing or listening experience by the following Tuesday.)

If you or someone in your family are a part of a vulnerable population or you just aren’t ready to return, we understand and support your need to attend online for now.

A Note from Our Staff

We understand that everyone’s circumstances differ and want you to know that we love and support you in making the wisest decision for your household each week.

We know that many of you, like us, are longing for the day we can all return to our Sunday gatherings as we have known and loved them for years. We also are looking forward to that future reality with hope and anticipation. However, we feel the responsibility of exercising caution and acting in wisdom to the best of our ability, following the current recommendations for each season. If this environment with masks and lack of refreshments and Mosaic Kids is challenging for you, know that we completely understand if you’d rather stay home and attend online.

Prayer & Worship Nights

Join Us for a Smaller, Midweek Gathering

Our leadership is thrilled for the opportunity to welcome our community back to the building in the coming weeks, starting with midweek Prayer & Worship Nights! These nights will be reduced capacity gatherings. For us to be able to monitor and care for that wisely, we’re requiring everyone to register for the Prayer & Worship Night they would like to attend—understanding that these sign-ups may fill up quickly and we will be asking you in the registration process to let us know how many people will be attending with you. Again, in an attempt to care for everyone’s health and safety, please do not plan on joining us for these nights without registering and please, to allow everyone the opportunity to attend, please only sign up for one night.

Health & Safety Guidelines

  • We are requiring that everyone RSVP so we can maintain social distancing in the sanctuary where we have a greatly limited capacity. Seating is grouped in pods of varying amounts of chairs (1-10 chairs). Each pod is separated by 6ft from other pods.

  • All staff and volunteers’ temperatures will be checked upon their arrival. Please check your temperatures before you leave home and if anyone has a temperature of 100.4 or above, we ask that you please stay home until everyone is fever free.

  • We require that everyone wear a mask for the full duration of your time in the building. (If a health restriction prevents you from safely wearing a face covering, we understand and want you to be safe, please explain your need briefly upon entering.)

  • We will not offer coffee, donuts, or any refreshments at Prayer & Worship Nights. You are welcome to bring water bottles and snacks or whatever you need from home.

  • As we seek to limit the length of interaction and exposure in our lobby, we ask that you arrive no more than 30min early and that you leave the lobby within 15min of exiting the sanctuary. We so look forward to the day when we can allow limitless interaction again, but in order to provide a safe environment, we must sanitize quickly between groups of people and we will need your cooperation and consideration of others on this.

Additional Note: Unfortunately, due to limited resources we will not be able to record or live stream any of the Prayer & Worship Nights.

RightNow Media

We are excited to announce our partnership with RightNow Media, an online platform that provides streamable discipleship materials of all kinds for you and your family!

We’re providing every person at Mosaic with a free account, giving us all access to countless hours of on-demand biblical teachings, in-depth studies, kids shows, parent resources, and more.

You can access it on your computer and add the app to your phone, Apple TV, Playstation, etc. We had planned to launch this as a resource later in the year, but the current circumstances have led us to move a little faster in order to help you out at home during this time.

You can sign up directly using this link: http://thisismosaic.org/rightnowmedia/.

VBS Online

Mosaic Kids is Bringing VBS to Your Home

While we aren’t able to gather all together in the Mosaic building just yet, we’ll be hosting Rocky Railway VBS online this summer and we’d love for you to join. If wise and fitting for your family’s circumstances, we encourage you to partner with friends and family, taking turns hosting the fun!

Pick Up Your VBS Kit • June 17th & 18th at 10:00am

We’ll be passing out VBS kits to each registered family the week before VBS kicks off. Come pick yours up in the back parking lot of our Mosaic Winter Garden campus on June 17th and 18th between 10:00 and 11:00am. These kits will include a parental guide, Bible memory verse cards, and craft supplies for each day. 

Rocky Railway VBS • June 22nd – 26th

Then, starting June 22nd, we’ll kick off VBS every day at 10:00am by releasing a video packed with worship, Bible stories, a craft, and the usual VBS zaniness on the Mosaic website. Decorate your living or playrooms and make it a week to remember as our kids explore how Jesus’ Power Pulls Us Through!

REGISTRATION CLOSED

Thank you to all the families who registered for this at-home adventure with us! We cant wait to see you on June 17th or 18th in the Mosaic parking lot for the pickup of your VBS Kits!

Connect With Us

Monday Night Prayer

Every Monday night at 6:30pm at our Winter Garden Campus, the Weekday Prayer Team meets to pray for specific needs that have been brought to our attention and worship as a community.

All are welcome to join! Come whenever you are free.

This is a great space for rest, reflection, silence, worship, and prayer. (You don’t need to commit to weekly attendance.)

Note: This tends to be a small group that gathers and so it is not a space we require masks or some of our other Sunday social distancing measures. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail prayer@thisismosaic.org.

Groups and Events

All Missional Communities, Groups, and Classes Will Not be Meeting In-Person for the Time Being

We are encouraging groups of 10 or more to meet online through free tools like Zoom or Google Hangouts along with continuing to share encouragement and needs with one another through text and messaging apps.

Reach out to your missional community, group, and/or class leaders for more information.

Events

All scheduled events are currently on hold for the time being. We are hoping to be able to reschedule some of the bigger events we had planned for March and April for later this year.

You can still sign up for major events scheduled to happen this summer and beyond on our full website. As things move forward, we’ll let you know any updates related to these on this page.

Mosaic at WDW

In lieu of our regular Tuesday night events, we’ll be sharing a fun activity or spiritual discipline every week that you and your household can participate in together. These will be posted on Mosaic’s at WDW’s Instagram and Facebook Story on Tuesday nights at 6:00pm.

Mosaic Students

As we slowly transition back to our regular Mosaic Students schedule, we hope you (our students) continue to connect with us over our regular avenues of community and discipleship available through Mosaic Students Instagram @mosaicstudents.

Mosaic Young Adults

While Mosaic Young Adults isn’t gathering on Thursday nights just yet, we are excited to be able to meet in-person in our Missional Communities this summer (we’re also launching a new solely online Missional Community). We have some outdoor events on the horizon too that we’re looking forward to announcing…

We’ll also continue sharing a weekly teaching every Thursday at 6:00pm on Mosaic’s IGTV for the coming weeks.

Mosaic Women

We’re kicking off a few women’s bible studies this summer and we would love for you to join one! Some are in-person while others are on Zoom to hopefully fit everyone’s varying circumstances and preferences.

Faith and Fear Series

Leader: Tonya Patterson
Day: Thursday Nights at 6:30 | Zoom
Begins June 11th – Ends July 9th
Download or purchase book on RightNow Media

Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone—the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant—a bully from which we can’t hind. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith. When fear strikes, where do we turn? Can God really be trusted?

Speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how they impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Whatever your fear, you are not alone nor are you without hope. You have the One who can calm your fears, grow your faith, and give the peace your heart craves.

Masterpiece in the Making

Leader: Laura Gordon
Wednesday Mornings at 10:30am | In-Person
Begins June 10th – Ends July 15th

Purchase Masterpiece in the Making on Amazon Do you feel stuck? Do you believe that you are too small to make a difference? Is living out one’s passion and purpose for others but not you? We hope this study will open your eyes and heart to your potential. God is a master artist and he chose a specific medium to bring out your beauty and worth. He utilizes your personality, passions, and experiences as He makes you into His masterpiece—a realization that can change your life.

One Thousand Gifts

Leader: Monika Harrison
Wednesdays from 10:00am-12:00pm | In-Person
Begins June 24th – End
Purchase Book: One Thousand Gifts (by Ann Voskamp) on Amazon
Find Study Guide (Every Good Gift) on RightNow Media

One Thousand Gifts invites you to discover a way of seeing that opens your eyes to grace and wonder in your every day. It proposes a way of living and being present with God that leads to deep joy. It’s only in the expression of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we’ve always wanted . . . a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones.

In-Person groups have a limited capacity in order to comply with public health recommendations. Group size may increase as these recommendations change.

Counseling & Recovery

We all have experienced life in hard spaces. We know it can get messy and complicated—even outside of COVID-19 circumstances. Often having a person or small community of support to process, pray, and support you as you journey through these spaces makes a huge difference.

If you feel like you could benefit from one-on-one counseling, group support, or even just a simple chat with someone familiar and trained in facing hardship, challenge, or anxiety please e-mail recovery@thisismosaic.org and our Director of Counseling & Recovery, Deb, will reach out to you.

On Mission

Let’s get bold and creative in living on mission, abiding in Jesus.

Here are some ways we can practice that in the midst of this particular season.

Local

  • Pray for your Neighbors | You can utilize Pray4EveryHome to pray for your neighbors by name.
  • Check up on your Neighbors | Ask how they are doing and if they need anything. If your not sick or at-risk, maybe take a daily walk around your neighborhood to be physically present or utilize tools like Nextdoor to learn about needs around your neighborhood.
  • Donate Blood | One local place to give with a few locations is OneBlood.
  • Donate Toys to Your Local Hospital | Hospitals are keeping the kids in the hospitals Isolated right now and so they are not able to share toys between the rooms, leaving a lacking number of toys to number of little patients.
    * Donations should be Direct Shipped from a store and not from someone’s personal home or address. Some suggestions of items to donate are Walkie Talkies (so kids can talk between rooms), Uno Cards, infant & baby toys. etc.
    Some hospitals you can donate to are:
    • Arnold Palmer Hospital
      Katie McMichael
      92 W Miler Street MP 309
      Orlando, FL 32816
    • Nemours Children’s Hospital Child Life Department
      13535 Nemours Parkway
      Orlando, FL 32827

Global

Pray for our Global Partners in Cambodia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Italy, Germany, South Africa, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, North Africa, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Ecuador, Brazil, and Argentina.

Pray for our North American Partners in Canada, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Michigan, North Carolina, South Florida and those in our home of Central Florida.

Looking Ahead

We will continue to pay close attention to and follow the government’s and health professional’s recommendations.

Let Us Abide

In this time while we’re not able to be physically together, we’ll be sharing encouragements, prayers, short teachings, and devotionals throughout every week on on Instagram and Facebook as well as on our website.

We know that all of us are experiencing quite a shift from our regular weekly rhythms, but the rhythm of abiding in Jesus—following His way, truth, and life—remains. And in doing so, we find He is our anchor in all times, always drawing us in closer towards Him and others.

Let’s not stop fearlessly pressing into abiding in Him individually and as a community in every moment. He pulls great purpose and beauty out of all seasons, leading us in every step.
