Comunidad Open-air Show

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2020 AT 3 PM – 6 PM PDT

@ Central Park Gardens of Davis

“COMUNIDAD: Honoring Community and Cultural Leaders during Covid-19″

Local artist Stephanie Thayer was inspired to do this project when quarantine started due to COVID-19, in part to keep busy, but ultimately to honor members of Davis and Sacramento who give back through activism, volunteering, art, music, dance, and to uplift the community in these uncertain times.  Stephanie hopes that her series inspires others to feel connected despite our physical distance, remember that we are still a “comunidad,” if you will, and hopes to bring a smile to your face. In this series Stephanie used colored pencils for the faces of the community members, and acrylic paint for the backgrounds. 

Stephanie says, “I am happy to announce that Comunidad, my portrait series that highlights Davis and Sacramento community members who give back, will finally be up for all of you to see! This will be an open-air viewing, where portraits will be spread out on easels on the grass in Central Park so that you can safely enjoy the artwork while maintaining a safe distance from others. Stores and restaurants will be open so feel free to grab a bite to eat and support your local businesses while downtown as well. This project is funded in part by a grant from the Davis Arts and Cultural Affairs program, and with the support of the International House. I also want to give a HUGE shout-out to Kate Mellon-Anibaba for her tireless work in grant-writing, planning, logistics, PR and so much more! You are amazing! Please wear a mask and adhere to physical distancing guidelines while attending. Hope to see you there!”

Annual Report to DCC

Davis Mosaics is a New Worshiping Community sponsored by Davis Community Church and 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, cooking, and music classes, outdoor activities, spirituality-developing events, fellowship, and worship, so that all experience God’s love and grace.

Over the past 5 years more than  1,000+ people have come through the DCC campus and checked out Davis Mosaics. 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 8~10 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 welcomed at Davis Mosaics, Millennials from 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.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mosaics classes and fellowship have converted to Zoom meetings on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 pm to 8 pm and continue to attract 3~9 new participants weekly.  In addition to 10 Zoom meetings weekly, several small groups are meeting in-person every other week in the community, keeping social distance. Davis Mosaics will resume contemporary fellowship and classes on Saturday afternoons from 3:00 to 8:30 pm at Phoenix Hall in the future. Currently over 400 people are registered as participants with weekly participation averaging 50 people. 60 – 75 people attend 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.
