Mosaic Youth

Welcome! However you found yourself here, we’re so glad to have you. We’re a community of students who treat each other like family and are seeking to know Jesus.

Mosaic loves students and believes that young people are ready to follow Jesus now. In a sea of competing voices and paths to take, we want students to know that they are created for a life full of hope and meaning. We want them to know that Jesus loves them and that they are empowered by the Holy Spirit to share God’s love with their friends. This happens through partnership with families, the leading and investment of incredible teams of volunteer leaders, and opportunities to honestly explore faith in community.

Monday Morning Prayer

Mondays

8:00 am

on Zoom

What if we started the school week giving thanks to God, asking him to go with us, and inviting him to shape our thoughts, desires, and actions? 

Join other students and leaders every Monday morning for a short prayer time on Zoom. One of the ways we support and care for each other is by praying together and for one another!

Praying is like a muscle. If you want your praying life to grow, you need to practice and work out. Mondays are a great opportunity to do that.

COVID-19 NOTE

As much as we are very excited to be gathering in-person, we recognize the extra caution and planning that are expected to keep one another safe, minimize risk, and stay accountable to the guidelines that our local government is providing. 

We will provide hand sanitizer for every youth event, be taking attendance and tracking who is attending (per Multnomah County requirements), and practicing social distancing while we are together. We won’t provide masks, but please bring and wear one if that helps you (or your parents) feel comfortable.

Community is often messy. We are all showing up with different concerns, levels of comfort, and opinions. But the beautiful picture we see in the life of Jesus and his disciples is that we are called to be compassionate, generous, and others-serving first. 

If you or someone in your home is feeling ill, please choose to stay home. This is one way we will serve each other, our friends, and those we don’t know yet!

PARENTS

Mosaic Youth desires to be a support and encouragement for the whole Mosaic community by caring for students and their families. We recognize that parents have immense influence in the lives of the students we serve and we as a ministry want to provide tools and support where appropriate. Please let us know how we can serve your family or connect you with a resource for your students.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP AND SERVICE

Students are capable of leading and influencing their world for good, and Mosaic Youth seeks to create a culture in which students know God by serving him. Jesus is a servant and teaches us to serve one another and participate as more than a consumer in his church. There is much to gain from serving and we provide opportunities for students desiring to grow in this way. There are opportunities to serve on Sundays, Wednesday nights, and throughout the year on mission and service trips.

SERVE
3rd Monday each month | 5:30-8:15pm
Portland Rescue Mission (Burnside Shelter)

Once a month, we take a team downtown to the Portland Rescue Mission’s Burnside Shelter to help serve dinner and love those who are less fortunate. Jesus models a life of serving others and this is one way we can practice living like him.
