BEGINNING THIS SUNDAY: Missio School of Theology - The Gospel of Jonah: 5 week class 10/22-11/19 @ 11AM

The story of Jonah is not about a fish. It’s not even really about Jonah. Instead, it’s about Jonah’s God. It’s about how God declares mercy and compassion to those far from Him and to those who could be close, but choose to run. Starting October 22 at 11AM and continuing for 5 weeks, we’ll be looking at Jonah with fresh eyes and fresh hearts to see and hear what God wants to say to us through this crazy sailor/fish/bad missionary story.  We’ll be meeting in the Glass Chapel. Materials provided. Contact Howie Smith with any questions, and to register.

The Peoples Theology: Episode 12 - Holy War pt. 1

How do we reconcile the goodness of Jesus and the violence of the Old Testament that is seemingly attributed to God? In this episode, we begin a 2 part series exploring Holy War with pastor and author Josh Butler. 

There are few topics that are as difficult for followers of Jesus than this and the answers we've received often feel a bit reductionist. That leaves many of us feeling afraid of the story and even afraid of the God depicted in the story. For others of us, we refuse to accept that kind of violence and reject either the story or the God of the story. 

What should we do with the violence of the OT? And more importantly, who is the God of these actions and moments? 

The answer we walk away with, is compelling and even good, but it's not easy.

Volunteering with Missio Dei

HOSPITALITY HIGHLIGHT: Let's make our Missio regulars and guests feel welcomed and wanted! We are currently looking for a few people to sign up for both the 9am and 11am services to both greet and usher. Specifically, we need 2-3 people for the 9am service and 2-3 people for the 11am service. It's a small time commitment, but a large impact in preparing our space for others to meet Jesus!
