My desire is for Mosaic Kids to be a space where we can build a firm foundation for our kids as they grow in their faith throughout their lives. In order to do that we need to constantly point them to God—to who He is and what He’s done.
It’s in this phase that Bible stories really come alive and are no longer just stories. We get to watch our Kindergarten through 4th graders grow in understanding of everything they’re learning, and with that new depth, start to make decisions informed by biblical truths and faith.
We want The City to be a place kids beg their parents to bring them to every week. So, we put hours upon hours of time and creativity into bringing it to life! Every month the stage gets decorated in a big way to help illustrate the current curriculum. It’s from here that kids experience God’s word in action through the Bible. Our goal is to share its stories with simplicity and nuance; simple enough for our kindergarteners to understand and detailed enough for our fourth-graders to discover something new.
Every gathering follows an arc of high-energy games, worship, and storytelling in our large-group time that eventually resolves into small groups where deeper exploration, life application, and Scripture memorization are encouraged. In these small groups, kids find a fun and safe space to be themselves as they interact and connect with one another and their leader, experiencing being an active part of a biblical community.
In 2018 we entered a new chapter at Mosaic with the Every Moment initiative. A key part of this next step in Mosaic’s story includes a buildout of our Winter Garden Campus, utilizing the building’s unused expansion space in a plan we call Phase Two.
What does this mean specifically for kids in The Garden and City? Two new, larger gathering spaces—a reimagined Garden and City (see concept art below), both of which can accommodate more kids, host more interactive stage activity, and, hopefully, immerse them in an environment of fun and wonder as they experience the gospel. We’re very excited about the addition of an indoor playground that will sit between these two new spaces.
