Membership: mostly from Columbia and Richmond counties, with some families also coming from Aiken County.
Founded: Mosaic began weekly worship on Feb. 22, 2004.
Known for: "Mosaic is a 'mission church,''' Moore said. "We believe that great churches are built on a foundation of servanthood, so at Mosaic, we are in partnership with local, regional and global ministries that extend our reach beyond our walls and as far as God leads.
"Jesus in the Streets is Mosaic's newest hands-on ministry, designed to link those with skills and a servant's heart with those in need. Jesus in the Streets provides minor auto and home repair to single moms and elderly adults.
"Perceptions reaches folks listening to secular radio stations. Our one-minute spots run daily on KICKS 99 and 96 ROCK. And of course, Celebrate Recovery is a weekly ministry committed to helping folks recover from hurts and habits by walking with them through the biblical steps of recovery.''
Music: "We offer a contemporary setting with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our music is a blend of contemporary praise songs, hymns and secular songs that speak to the message of the day,'' Moore said. "Our praise team uses keyboard, drums, guitar and other instruments.''
What would you say to someone who's thinking about giving your church a try? "We are a great place to start if you've been out of church for a while and are looking for a safe place to reconnect with the Christian community,'' Moore said. "We take a lot of joy in being a loving, safe place for people searching for hope.''
What is the biggest issue facing the faithful today? "For so many, there is a great tension between the call of Christ and the lure of the world,'' Moore said. "We believe 'the good life' is found by following Jesus Christ with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.''
