Weekly Update 9.15.17

Here's what's happening!

Change Groups - Starting September 17th- Registration Open Now. 
The week beginning September 17th we'll start Change groups which focus on identifying ways we intentionally or unintentionally hinder our own growth.  The purpose of these groups is to provide a place at Missio where we take steps towards change. We’ll join each other in a transformative process of self-examination, honesty, and support.  These groups are intended to be a place where our potential struggle toward wholeness are met by Christ’s love and grace. The groups are open for registration now.  

Group members make a commitment to meet for 10 weeks, maintain confidentiality, and complete exercises from a workbook. The structure is such that you’ll cultivate trust, support, and accountability as you walk with others who are pursuing similar growth. 
Registration is required, as the groups will be closed once the first gathering begins.  You can do that HERE  If you have questions e-mail Heather: heather@missiodeislc.com

Prayer Night - Last Tuesday of every Month - 7-8pm
"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

Women’s Retreat - October 13th-14th
Missio Dei will be having a women's retreat on October 13th-14th, which is intended to allow us time away with other women to be rejuvenated. We’ll do so by diving into God’s word together, through group activities, optional physical activities, worship, and more. For more information and to register, click here

The Peoples Theology - Episode 10 - Displaced
Today, homelessness is more of an issue than ever. The rate has grown, the opioid epidemic has ruined lives without prejudice and now case workers are seeing an even higher rise of young people on the street. 
And if that all isn't enough already, right now Texas and Florida are recovering from Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Everyone's lives are upended by natural disasters but this is especially true of the homeless who have no safety nets or systems of support. 
If you’re like me you want to do something, but aren’t quite sure what. How are people, Christians, and especially the church supposed to respond to homelessness not just in SLC but everywhere we find it? Is there something that we can do or are we stuck? 
In Episode 10, of The Peoples Theology we interview Fred Liggin president of 3E Restoration a nonprofit that works to equip, encourage, and empower displaced peoples and churches.
