A new church is sharing their grand opening on Sunday, Oct. 4 in Maple Grove – focusing on three primary areas: love God (Sunday service), serve others (local and global), and make disciples (small groups).
“We are a brand new
church made up of broken, imperfect people. We want to be a safe place for
anyone and everyone to experience grace, community, purpose, and passion,” Mosaic Church Lead Pastor Erik Lindeen. “Together, we want to learn what it
means to be more like Jesus.”
Along with Pastor Lindeen, his wife Kristin and his family, a group of about 85 adults and children have come together to start Mosaic Church. Planning for the grand opening started last December, the church becoming officially incorporated with the State of Minnesota in January.
Mosaic Church is hosting a grand opening service 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 4 at Weaver Lake Elementary (15900 Weaver Lake Road) in what Lindeen says is “a pretty casual atmosphere” with contemporary music and children’s programming from infant to fifth grade. It is open to all community members. Services are each Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at Weaver Lake Elementary.
“You can drop your
kids off in our children’s program knowing that they’ll grow spiritually and
learn about God in a safe, clean, fun environment,” he said. “It might be the
best hour of your kids’s week!”
Lindeen grew up in
Maple Grove, a former student at Cedar Island Elementary. He later graduated
from North Central University in Minneapolis with a Bachelor’s degree in
Pastoral Studies and then earning a Master’s degree in Theological Studies from
Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
After serving at churches in White Bear Lake, Denver, and Madison, Lindeen said they felt “called back home to the wonderful city of Maple Grove.”
“We know that there are a bunch of great churches here in Maple Grove but we thought we could start a church for those that haven’t yet found a faith community to belong in,” Lindeen said. “Our desire is to be a blessing to the community of Maple Grove. As we grow and get established, we hope we can bless those around us and help families grow stronger by growing together spiritually.”
Partners of Mosaic Church include Converge North Central, Grace Fellowship, and Northridge Fellowship.
