We want to care for our city by meeting real needs in Portland with our creativity, people, and financial resources with no strings attached, but with the hope of making Jesus known. Currently, God has called Mosaic to engage in four areas of need in our city: Schools, Poverty, Anti-Trafficking & Foster Kids. Mosaic strives to be the hands & feet of Jesus by serving and seeking justice for people within these areas of need.
The primary way that Mosaic engages in these four areas and meets other needs in our city is through discipling and equipping Life Groups to serve together regularly. Click here to learn about Life Groups and sign up to join a group. There are also several church-wide projects throughout the year that are open to the entire Mosaic community.
Mosaic works alongside the following local partners in these efforts:
»Scott School: A socio-economically diverse K-8th grade school located in Portland’s NE Cully neighborhood.
» Madison High School: A highly diverse campus on NE 82nd Ave that pulls students from Scott School.
