Mosaic is where adult singles can find friends and begin to experience authentic community. The purpose of Mosaic is to create a fun, friendly, environment where singles can connect and get to know one another, while engaging in topics relevant to their lives. Events are planned to allow a time for people to connect and create a community of friends.

This year, the In-Home Gatherings are going to revolve around continuing the discussion from the Mosaic Series about life and the fractured state of things. We will take an in depth look at how Jesus’ death and resurrection has paid the price for our lives to be renewed through our restored relationship with God. While the perfect rhythm of creation was interrupted by sin, God, not death, has the final say and our hope for new lives and a new world is one that is guaranteed by Jesus.
What is an In-Home Gathering?
In-Home Gatherings are environments where single adults can connect, build authentic friendships, and take the next steps to greater community. The gatherings consist of a medium-sized group of people (usually about 15-30 people) who meet together every Sunday over the course of 3 weeks.
The first 30 minutes revolve around connection, including food, conversation, etc. The next portion of the night involves more structured interaction. Each night’s programming is different, with possible use of a DVD clip, a trivia game, etc. We also break the gatherings into smaller groups of eight to twelve people for more conversation around the topic guided by discussion questions that are provided. This creates the feel of a small group and, hopefully, encourages people to have deeper conversations as well as create greater connections. The gatherings meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm and are led by a team of volunteer leaders.
*If you are separated and/or going through the process of divorce (meaning you are still legally married), we request that you do not sign up for In-Home Gatherings and encourage you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for other opportunities to connect.
*In-Home Gatherings are designed as an opportunity for singles to take next steps to greater connection within Chestnut Ridge Church. Unfortunately we do not currently have the capacity to accommodate individuals from other churches who are solely looking to find a large singles group for social interactions. At this time, we can only place singles into our gatherings who are regularly attending CRC or who are looking for a church home. If you regularly attend another church, we ask that you please do not register.
