Mosaic Anglican Church is a new church; new in many ways.
New Start, fall of 2010:
• Mosaic began through prayerful discernment in the fall of 2010 as our rector, Elaine Storm, sought God's guidance. Over the course of the next nine months this prayer formed into an articulated vision, which was shared among friends, family, and Diocesan Leadership. By August of 2011, eight people sat around her dining room table to discuss the formation of a new church plant. Over the course of the next three years, Mosaic was launched as one of hundreds of new church plants within the Anglican Church of North America under the direction and leadership of The Archbishop Bob Duncan.
New way of being the church:
• The early years of Mosaic were spent as a portable church: First, in a banquet hall of the Tonidale in North Fayette, and then in the cafeteria of Holy Trinity School located in McKees Rocks. During these years God formed Mosaic into a viable church. We began living into our core values: ADVENTURE, GENEROSITY, RESTORATION, and DIVERSITY.
• We learned how to follow God’s direction as we lived out being the church in a missional way. We believe that the church exists for those who are not part of the church; so it is not uncommon to see those who call Mosaic their home church OUT in the community.
New Geographic Location, fall of 2014:
• Our move to North Fayette marked growth for the church plant.
o The Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh received Mosaic as a full-fledged church during the fall Convention, 2014. Although this has not changed how we do ministry, it marks our growth as a church.
o North Fayette’s Township Board granted us permission to lease space in Imperial Plaza, July 2014. Being in a permanent location has allowed us to begin building relationships with the community. We are thrilled to be a part of this township during their years of expansion and growth. We look forward to what God has in store for us.
