Weekly Update 9.29.17

Here's what's happening at Missio:

Food Truck This Sunday - Taco Truck!

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.

Child Dedications - November 5th
November 5th at the 9 and 11am services, we will be hosting a Child Dedication. Please register in advance in order to let us know which service time you would prefer (registrations will be open until October 22nd). We look forward to partnering with you as you make a public declaration of commitment to your child's spiritual growth. Register HERE.

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

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

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.
