Davis Mosaics is a New Worshiping Community sponsored by Davis Community Church. Led by Rev. Dr. Stephen Moon and supported by the hospitality gifts of Grace Moon, Davis Mosaics mission is to share God’s love and grace with Millennials through free language classes, cooking, music, outdoor activities, spirituality-developing events, fellowship, so that they experience God’s love and grace.
Over the past 3 years of Davis Mosaics, 600+ people have come through the DCC campus and checked us out. Of those about 120 people are active with Davis Mosaics. Davis Mosaics is true evangelism reaching out to a generation that is primarily unchurched. Though not a part of the mission, 5 people from Davis Mosaics have become members of Davis Community Church and another 5~10 people now also worship with DCC.
Davis Mosaics creates a place of belonging for all… Christian and non-Christian alike. Mosaics is grounded in the spiritual practice of hospitality, enabling us to more fully meet, live with and know our neighbors. Since the original word for hospitality, “philoxenia,” literally means the ‘love of strangers,’ Mosaics is called to create a community of welcome for all, a new expression of Christianity that responds to our changing culture in dynamic ways.
Davis Mosaics compliments the mix of programs at Davis Community Church and reaches people not otherwise reached by DCC. By feeling welcome at Davis Mosaics, Millennials in the area are exposed to additional programs and possibilities available at Davis Community Church. They consistently invite their friends to join them at Davis Mosaics.
Davis Mosaics exists to build authentic “koinonia” (Acts 2:42-47) while pursuing the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:36-40) and the Great Commission of Jesus (Matt. 28:16-20 & 2 Cor. 10:15b), for the Mosaic Generation in Davis and its surrounds.
Join us for contemporary inter-faith/intercultural Mosaics fellowship every Saturday afternoon from 3 pm to 8:30 pm at the 2nd floor of the Phoenix Hall. Davis Mosaics numbers grow as we have 3~9 newcomers weekly. Currently over 350 people are registered as participants with weekly participation averages 38 people with 60 – 75 people attending special events.
Davis Mosaics is grateful for ALL that Davis Community Church gives to Davis Mosaics: facilities, staff support, pastoral support, financial resources, all with lots of prayer and encouragement
