Mel Gibson and baby Lucia on a church playdate

Dec. 7, 2010 at 2:36 PM ET

It's rare to see Mel Gibson in public, even rarer to see him in public with his daughter Lucia, who is at the center of the ongoing custody battle between Gibson and her mother Oksana Grigorieva. TMZ has photos of Gibson and Lucia on the grounds of Gibson's church in Malibu, Calif.

Gibson has yet to speak publicly about Grigorieva's allegations of domestic abuse. A source close to Gibson suggests that the actor has no intention of making public statements about the feud. "It will work itself out in the courts," said the source.
