Weekly Update 3.1.18
New 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:
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.

Change For A Dollar Update
Change For A Dollar exists because we believe big change can come from small acts of generosity. February's Change For A Dollar focused on a family whose father was deported while on his way to work. He was the primary financial support for his family; wife and three young children. Thanks to your generosity, we are able to give over $5600 to this family. Thank you, Missio! Stay tuned for upcoming Change for a Dollar stories.
