Weekly Update 3.15.18
March 15, 2018
Current Series: February 14th - March 25th
Why did Jesus die on a cross? That might sound like a simple or even silly question. All of us have heard, "Jesus died on the cross to forgive us of our sins," right? But that's where things get tricky because what does it actually mean? Throughout the season of Lent will be wrestling with this question, and what we'll find is that the answer is bigger and better than we ever imagined. Below you'll find a link to additional resources:
The story of the gospel is embodied each week as we gather around the table. That table shapes our lives, hearts, and imaginations and forms us into a people who live that out and welcome people around our table. Open Table was started to do just that. Tomorrow, March 15th, we will be serving dinner to anyone who needs it. If you have further questions or want to help out by cooking, serving, setting up tables and chairs, food shopping, or anything else, email Christin Hyde here.
Lent focuses on Jesus' journey to the cross culminating with Good Friday, the day we remember Jesus’ death. Good Friday is meant to be the dark silence before the celebration of Resurrection on Easter morning. It is a poignant moment in the story of Jesus and in our story as Christ followers. Join Missio for our service starting at 6:30 pm. Childcare will be provided for kids up to 5 years of age.
Baptisms Easter Sunday
Jesus gives the church, the gift of baptism as a way to practice and proclaim the reality of our new citizenship in Him. If you consider yourself a follower of Jesus but haven’t been baptized, get baptized, and let’s celebrate the work of Jesus in your life on Easter. Baptism at Missio is open to anyone who wants to follow Jesus. If you are interested in being baptized email Kyle@missiodeislc.com.
This coming Sunday, March 18, at 9am in the Glass Chapel, we'll have a Missio Youth Parent meeting. At the meeting, I'll share a bit about myself, what's on the horizon for our youth, and I'll field any youth related questions you might have. This'll also be your chance to meet other Missio Youth parents! Please make plans to attend! For any youth related questions, or to be added to the Missio Youth Parent newsletter, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
S2:E1 – Fear & Loathing
The Peoples Theology is back. In our first episode of season two, we are exploring a feeling. Author, Pankaj Mishra, calls our cultural moment an "age of rage." All of us, at some level, can relate to this. We watch it play out on the news, in our Facebook feeds, in conversations with family, and many of us feel it. Listen here.
