At Mosaic, we intentionally bring beauty to the people around us; each week we seek to beautify both someone in Mosaic as well as a neighbor, co-worker, or friend by sending an encouraging note, fixing a car, dropping a food basket or anything else that would bring beauty to their lives. We also seek to bring beauty to the earth and our environment knowing that the care or defacement of God’s creation is in our hands. We want love accompanied by action to mark our faith community. Mosaic works with a number of local organizations who are serving Bellingham and Whatcom County. It is our privilege to join them in their ongoing efforts and hope that you will jump on some of these opportunities in our wonderful area.
