• Fundraising Period: March 30, 2020 through June 30, 2020

• Fundraising Goal: $5,000

Mission Statements:

Mosaics seeks to move the “church as institution” to “religion as spiritual faith,” placing an emphasis on creating a culture of belonging and knowing one another deeply first. As Dr. Diana Butler Bass so eloquently puts it, “Christianity did not begin with a confession. It began with an invitation into friendship, into creating a new community, into forming relationships based on love and service.”

Mosaics continues to restore the koinonia of the early first century movement (Acts 2:42-47), encounter (paga) with God in a daily basis to share everything in common, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people, which is the authentic agape fellowship instructed by our Lord Jesus Christ. In the new era of paradigm shift, Mosaics will truly be an exciting movement for the church of future.

Portrait of Grace & Stephen Moon

by Señora Misteriosa
Portrait 6 of the 10 PIECE SERIES OF PORTRAITS OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS by Artist, Señora Misteriosa
Artist: Stephanie Thayer

Portrait 6 complete which means I’m over half way done with my initial community-members-who-give-back series! Today I am honoring some of the most humble, generous, and kind people I know in Davis. Dr. Stephen Moon and Grace K Moon were both born in Korea, and came to Hawaii in 1983 to study and later start a family. As parents of two millennial children, they have a strong passion and desire to reach younger generations. Steven and Grace run an organization called, “Mosaics” at the Davis Community Church (where Steven is a Pastor) which has been sponsored by the Davis Community Church since 2015. Mosaics offers various language, music, spiritual and cultural classes free of charge to the public (but please donate to keep them afloat). To access Mosaics’ spring schedule check out http://www.nextg.org/mosaics-2020-spring-class-schedule/ (classes are now being offered on zoom. Check the schedule here http://www.nextg.org/mosaics-zoom-classes/). I’ve taken Portuguese and Spanish classes there and the teachers are excellent. While community members take language classes at Mosaics on Saturday afternoons, Grace is busy preparing a free community meal for 60 people (with the help of volunteers) which is served at 6 pm. It’s ALWAYS delicious and nutritious. During dinner there is usually an open mic night where people can perform solo or in groups. The Moons have truly created an amazing space that has brought people from all walks of life together and built community. All faiths are welcome. Steven and Grace, I am so glad I met you this year and thank you for all you do for the community! See Less— with Stephen Moon at Davis Mosaics.

Special Announcement Regarding COVID-19

Dear beloved Mosaics, In light of current news about the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19, we’ve considered what is the most loving and caring thing to do as a loving community. California Gov. Newsom is asking residents to postpone all non-essential gatherings, including small social gatherings, through the end of March. Health officials advise postponing or canceling any gathering of 250 or more.We are taking a precautionary step of not meeting at all starting from this Saturday, March 14 and will not meet until the beginning of May.

No gatherings from this Saturday until we are fully safe!

Grace decided to prepare food for 40 shelter guests at our home rather than at the Fellowship Hall kitchen. We will deliver the food directly to Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis by 6 pm this Saturday. So, we are canceling the cooking preparation (originally scheduled from 1 pm to 5:30 pm) at the church this Saturday.From now on, all classes are cancelled until the end of March. We will re-evaluate if we can resume meeting on Saturday, April 4 with potluck dinner (tentative).

We suggest all teachers and group leaders continually connect with students and group members via online video platforms such as Zoom or Skype as well as social media.Grace and I are available to chat or offer prayers over the phone (916-217-5470) or social media during this difficult time. We hope and pray that this pandemic will end soon.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

– Philippians 4:6-7

May God bless you all with protection and provision!

With much love and appreciation,

Dr. Stephen Moon, Mosaics Pastor
