Office Address: The church office mailing address is 11200 Broadway St. Suite 2743, Pearland, TX 77584. Open Monday- Friday, 9a-1p. We are located in the Regus Business Center in the Offices East section of the Pearland Town Center (On the right side of Dick’s Sporting Goods store).
PeaceKids Sunday School! We have TWO classes for kids & youth: PreK - 4th grade, and 5th - 12th grade. Elementary Class meets in the larger classroom and the Youth Class meets in the very back room at Mosaic. Your kids will love it and YOU’LL love one of our adult classes below!
Mosaic Reminders! First, if you come in late or early and worship is going on, feel free to come on in and go back to a back Sunday School room or just come sit in the cushy arm chairs in the back of the sanctuary. Everyone else, please try and leave those chairs open for early or late-comers. Second, please remind your older children that the nursery is for ages 4 and under during worship. I know the new toys look really fun, but we must only have volunteers who are 13 years and older, adults, and young children in there during worship times. Also, BE CAREFUL WITH SPILLS, SINCE THE FLOOR IS SLICK WHEN WET! Thanks!
Adult Acts Class: The Adult Acts class is studying the book “Fruit of the Spirit: 48 Bible Studies for Individuals or Groups” by Phyllis J. Le Peau, Jack Kuhatschek, Jacalyn Eyre & Stephen Eyre. All are welcome to join the class (Sundays from 10:10 - 11:00) in the sanctuary at Mosaic.
