Youth and Parent’s Night – THIS FRIDAY - August 18th - 7pm-11pm – At Missio Dei
On Friday, August 18th, we are having our 2nd Youth and Parent’s Night at Missio. Youth grades 6th-12th are invited for dinner, games, and fun while the parent’s meet together for dinner, to connect with other parents, and hear from Pastor Jonny. Then the parents will be free to go run errands, go to a movie, or continue getting to know each other while the youth continue their night of fun! Parents can pick up their youth at 11pm (or whenever needed by 11pm). Email Carla for more information
Prayer Night - August 29th - 7pm-8pm
"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3). We want to come together and pray as a community. The last Tuesday of each month, we gather and spend the evening praising the Lord together and praying to Him for many things (including but not limited to our community of Missio Dei as a whole, our ministries, our house churches, our leaders, and our city). Contact Stephanie for more info
Last Tuesday of the month. Join us Aug 29th from 7pm-8pm

The Peoples Theology - Episode 9 - Building Babel
The Peoples Theology is back after a short summer break. Listen to our newest Podcast, Episode 9 - Building Babel.
We live in tension. We wake up and breathe the air tension every day and the question most of us will ask is, “what do we do in the tension?” Can we fix it? Make it better? Resolve it? These are questions we’ve been asking for all of human history. Questions that have driven our most significant culture projects. Our institutions, governments, and inventions begins with the recognition that, “all is not right” in the world but while at the same time innately believing that it can be better. We see a problem and build, dream, and experiment to solve it believing that tension can be resolved, that the world can be better.
This is a good and right response to the evil we see in the world. We are image bearers, made in the likeness of a Creator who has a habit of bringing light and life to wild wastes. It is natural for us to look at destruction and want to fix it, especially when we are responsible in the first place. It’s good to intervene in crisis and seek restoration, right to change our habits and decrease our ecological footprint and honorable to get dirty cleaning shorelines damaged by oil spills. These things are good, just, and right––natural expressions of the Imago Dei.
What happens though, when we overestimate our ability to fix the problem? Listen and Subscribe HERE.
