Whether you are new in town or new to Jesus, checking out churches can be really hard. Where do I go? What do I do with my kids? What will the music be like? What is the teaching like? What will people be wearing? Will it be weird? Am I wasting a Sunday morning only to find out that this is just not the right fit for me? These are all valid questions to ask when looking for a church. Here is a brief run-down of what to expect at any gathering at any campus of Mosaic Church. If you want specific information about our campuses, you can learn more at each campus page: Winter Garden & @Walt Disney World.
Parking works a little differently at each of our campuses, but never a big deal. Check out the campus pages for more specific details.
As you arrive at our buildings, you’ll find plenty of signs pointing you towards the kids areas. If you are dropping your children off before a gathering, give yourself extra time to get them checked in properly. Check-in opens 15 minutes before each gathering and closes 20 minutes after the gathering starts. We take your kids safety very seriously by doing full background checks on every single person serving with Mosaic Kids. Classes are fun and high energy. Biblical truth is the core of everything we teach.
After dropping off your children, feel free to grab a donut or bagel in the lobby, they’re free! Regular coffee and tea are also provided free of charge. Our Winter Garden campus has a coffee bar that serves the fancy expresso drinks for a small charge (all proceeds go to missions).
Now that your kids are safe and sound in Mosaic Kids and you’ve got your coffee. Head on into the gathering space. You will notice a pretty easy-going environment where people are dressed casually. In fact, our Lead Pastor has a tendency to wear flip-flops. If you arrive early, you’ll have no problem getting a seat of your choice. If you arrive a little late and the room looks full, don’t worry . . . we’ll help direct you to an open spot.
You’ll notice a lot of people in the lobby area wearing blue shirts that say “blue shirt” as if the color was not obvious enough. Those volunteers are there to help you. We make it obvious because we want you to be able to find out what you need to find out. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they can probably find someone who does. There are always a couple of our pastors nearby.
If you’ve been to a few different churches, you know that musical styles can vary quite a bit. Ours tends to be a modern rock style on the louder side. We have a number of worship leaders on our team and they each bring their own style to our gatherings. The bottom line for us is that our worship is designed to point you to Jesus. It’s not about the stage or the lights or the talent of the musicians and vocalists. It’s about Jesus.
Our teaching is focused on taking the deep truths of The Bible and explaining them in an inspiring manner that makes sense today. We have a very narrative style of preaching, in other words, we are story tellers telling God’s story. We also tend to bring our own stories into the preaching as God works in us. We spend most of the year preaching through books of the Bible, with occasional breaks for topical series. Expect our messages to last roughly 45 minutes. Check out the full Message Archive.
You may notice that we don’t pass offering plates or buckets at Mosaic and wonder how we pay the electric bill? We’ve chosen to make giving a very purposeful action by placing tithing/giving boxes at the back of our worship spaces and we encourage those who call Mosaic home to give regularly, sacrificially and joyfully.
