“Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14

“Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I may remember.  Involve me and I learn.”                  Ben Franklin

MOSAIC Kids logoAs moms, we try to teach our children the importance of compassion and helping others.  We also want them to appreciate and be grateful for what they have, and to share from that bounty.  There’s no better way to teach our children all of this than by involving them and helping them to put their faith into action.

MOSAIC Kids will do just that.  Whether it be visiting the local assisted living/nursing home monthly, participating in bi-monthly service projects, or making and delivering baked goods to community workers, our children will learn the importance and impact of sharing their time and talent on both the local and global levels.

Without a doubt, there are a lot of problems in the world.  By participating in MOSAIC Kids, our children will learn that although they are little, they can have a big impact.  By being Gods hands and feet on earth, they will realize that God sent us all, even the little children, to be the solution.

MOSAIC Kids is run by Jess Weller

Towards this end, each MOSAIC Kids gathering will begin and end with a prayer that invites God into our activity, blesses our time together, and turns the activity itself into a prayer.  Moreover, at the end of each gathering, moms/caregivers will be given a list of “Questions for Reflection.”  Whether on the car ride home, at dinner that evening, or at bed time, moms/caregivers will discuss these questions with their kids.  As each child shares their thoughts and feelings uninterrupted, they will come to realize the profound impact of sharing their time, talent and love.  It is through this “Faith Sharing” piece that moms can help their children process the experience, as well as emphasize the concept that doing for others is the same as doing for Jesus.

Children from infants to high school students are welcome to join.

MOSAIC Kids is a non-denominational program.  Families of all faiths are welcome.

This is not a drop-off program.  Moms/caregivers are required to attend, participate, and supervise their own children at all times, at all MOSAIC Kids events.
