About Mosaic Kids
And so, we realize it's vital that we make access to the gospel, the wonder of Christ, and biblical community a reality for our kids in every possible way with every opportunity.
We take investing in the emerging generation very seriously and understand that the years of zero to eighteen are profoundly formative and limited. It’s in these years, during the beginning of someone’s story, that the opportunity to speak into their life is undeniably unique. And we don’t want to waste a moment of it.
Here at Mosaic, we see the same Holy Spirit working in our adults also powerfully working in our kids. In our children’s ministry, we partner in this work by crafting Sunday mornings to share God’s story in a compelling, real, and clear way.
Ultimately, we want every kid who walks through our doors to know they are seen, known, and loved. We want them to experience the gospel in a biblical community through Sunday gatherings, teaching, worship, and small groups. Most of all, we want them to know from the beginning that God and His church believe in them to have a Kingdom impact.
To best care for everyone in this season, we’re asking that you follow these current health and safety measures when visiting our campuses.
Our Little Kids environments serve kids from three months through Pre-K in a fun, safe, and visually engaging environment. We utilize age-appropriate crafts and Bible stories to begin sharing the grand narrative of the Bible. Offered at both of our campuses.
The Garden is geared specifically towards kindergarteners, giving them a little more space and time to explore as they engage in worship, teaching, crafts, and small groups. Here, we help our five and six-year-olds transition smoothly from the more intimate environment of Little Kids to the larger setting of The City. Offered at our Winter Garden Campus.
Sunday gatherings in The City look a lot like our adult gathering in the sanctuary, centering around worship and teaching with the addition of small groups. This is a high-energy environment that we hope is the most fun, relevant, and unforgettable time of our kids’ week. Offered at our Winter Garden Campus.
Mix 56 serves as a bridge between children’s and student ministry. It reflects the structure of Wednesday nights at Mosaic Students with game time, student-led worship, contextualized teaching, and a highly intentional small group time. We want our preteens to know that we respect the beginning of their journey into teendom while also encouraging them to not lose their sense of fun and play. Offered at our Winter Garden Campus.
We are committed to making Mosaic Kids a space that serves every child. Our goal is to meet kids’ needs, whether they come from a typical family, have medical challenges or learning differences, are newly adopted, or are currently in foster care. If your child needs extra assistance to be comfortable in a children’s ministry environment, we can offer them a Sidekick. Offered at our Winter Garden Campus.
Because we want to encourage a culture of cross-generational discipleship, students and young adults lead in Mosaic Kids alongside parents—and even grandparents. These volunteers attend training throughout the year and participate in a pre-gathering meeting on Sundays when they serve. During this time, they explore that day’s teaching in-depth and may even play one of the games planned for that day. Ultimately, we want our volunteers to feel inspired and equipped to share biblical truth and build genuine relationships with the kids they serve.
Child dedication is a beautiful part of community life at Mosaic. In it, we recognize that God is the author and keeper of our children’s lives, and we, as His church, get to participate in that story. We host child dedications as a special event a few times throughout the year. To reserve your spot in the next upcoming one, look for it in the Mosaic calendar.
In the fall of 2018, Mosaic stepped into a new chapter with the Every Moment initiative. This two-year initiative invites all of us who call Mosaic home to look more fearlessly than ever at using our resources to maximize the impact we have as a church body with our collective years, months, weeks, days, hours, and more.
A vital part of Every Moment focuses on resourcing Mosaic Kids because we believe that discipling the emerging generation is non-negotiable to the vision of seeing the world changed by the gospel. This resourcing includes staff additions as well as expanding their space.
When we moved into the 78,000 square feet of our Winter Garden Campus in 2017, we decided to only build out the 50,000 square feet that we needed at the time. With 40% growth in our church body since then, we see the need to finish a Phase Two buildout of the remaining square footage. We’ve been dreaming up concepts for additional kids gathering spaces, classrooms, and an indoor playground with PlainJoe Studios and excited to share what’s ahead.
• An indoor playground will sit in between the new Garden and City spaces.
• The Garden and City will move into a new, beautifully built-out home in the expansion space creating 40% more overall space for K-5.
• The Kids Check-In area will expand and be reconfigured for better functionality.
• Mix 56 will move from their current home by the coffee bar into what is now called The City.
• A secure outdoor basketball area will be added to what is currently a loading dock behind the building.
• Four more classrooms will be added to Mosaic Kids, providing more space for K-5 as well as Little Kids.
• A dedicated bathroom and changing area for kids with special needs will be added in order to serve our superheroes better than ever.
