Known for: "We are a church of selves and celebration," Moore said. "We are known for our home groups and Sunday celebration. Because we have that structure, the home groups do the work of the church. Every home group is charged with not just Bible study and fellowship, but also worship, evangelism and missions."
Music: The church has a music team and uses instruments such as a keyboard, drums, violin, saxophone, bass, guitar, percussion and accordion. "We've even had the washboard," Moore said. "It's a very eclectic, contemporary mix (of music). We've sung songs in African, Chinese and Spanish languages.''
What would you say to someone who's thinking about giving your church a try? "Because Mosaic is a new church, everyone that comes in has a chance of being a part of something new," she said. "So it's a great church if you're starting over again."
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing the faithful today? "To be true to the call, to reach those who do not yet know," Moore said. "That's our challenge.''
