Live your story.

 

At Mosaic, we consider it our job to build followers of Jesus who live their stories — taking the life of Jesus out into the world. Mosaic is a missional community. That means that for us, all people matter, and loving people is central to who we are. Not just our people … all people. We are especially good at loving people in the margins and being friends with those who might not fit in more traditional churches.

 

The least, the last and the lost … that’s our charge, our passion and our vision. Because everyone has a story to tell, and all people matter.

 

Our strategic ministries and partnerships include:

  1. Third Saturday — This is a homegrown ministry that happens at Mosaic on (you guessed it) the third Saturday of every month. Anyone is welcome to stop by. We love our guests, and we love the sweet spirit that happens at Third Saturday. Oh, and we do this together with our Lutheran neighbors, who are the coolest bunch of Lutherans we’ve ever met.

 

 

 

Mosaic Downtown — Another homegrown ministry of Mosaic, Mosaic Downtown is a collection of ministries based out of Maxwell House — a low- and no-income apartment complex in downtown Augusta for adults with disabilities. We share Bible study, worship, food, hugs, transportation and prayer together with these good friends.

 

 

The Pantry — Yet another homegrown ministry … and wow, has it grown! The Pantry serves about a thousand pounds of food per month through both Third Saturday and Mosaic Downtown. An amazing team of volunteers make this room o’ food sing! Beautiful!

 

 

 

 

Father’s Heart — Don Raley is the leader of this mission, which is all about making friends with young adults in crisis for the sake of leading them into a close and healing walk with Jesus.

 

 

 

 

Grits and Grins — Kate Booth leads this mission to those with health or economic crises. She and her team knit love into lives — creating prayer shawls, hats, gloves, and blankets to those in need.

 

 

 

 

Christ Community Health Services — An amazing local ministry that offers reduced-rate health care with real doctors and nurses on staff. This is no “clinic.” This is solid, affordable health care with Jesus at the center. Our kind of thing.

 

Action Ministries

 

  1. Action Ministries — We love these people. They serve together with us at Maxwell House, providing the social work so we can provide the spiritual care.

 

 

SafeHouse Outreach — The coolest little ministry in downtown Atlanta, Safehouse is all about loving people on the streets just as they are, and providing compassionate help to those who need it. Safe house also teaches churches how to love the poor.

 

 

UGA Wesley Foundation — One awesome ministry. Seriously! This is UGA’s United Methodist outreach to students, and they are knocking it out of the park. Weekly worship is about 1500 kids. Their ministry to freshmen touches about 10% of the overall freshman population (that’s a ton of students at UGA). And they are Spirit-filled and serious about discipleship.

 

 

 

 

Christian Flights International (Haiti)— This is a partnership with people from Kentucky and Georgia who love Haiti and want to make a difference in the world. For forty years, CFI has been pouring into Ranquitte, building partnerships, disciples, and hope for Haiti.

 

 

 

 

 

TMS-Global — Train. Mobilize. Send. This is the mission of TMS-Global, a mission agency dedicated to sending those who are called especially to the least-reached people groups around the world.

 

 

 

 

Hope for Today — Working with ILI (International Leadership Institute), Hope For Today trains and sends church planters into the least-reached regions of India. Founder Peter Pereira makes a bold claim. He believes India will be won by its women. We want to partner with anyone who is ready to equip men AND women to go into all the world and preach good news.

 

 

 

 

Venezuela Now — Warren and Jane Lathem and Dan and Nancy Dunn have established and maintained a Methodist seminary in Venezuela, training up pastors to go out and change the spiritual climate in this impoverished and politically devastated country. Venezuela needs our prayers and our support now more than ever.
