Weekly Update 3.22.18

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:
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.
Men’s breakfast Saturday March 24th 7-9 am in the Missio Cafe. This will be a time to hang out, discuss faith with a short devotional, and be presented with some ways to get involved with other men in our community through discipleship and serving.
Bring your favorite dessert to share this Easter. All of the desserts will go on a massive dessert table for everyone to share. It doesn’t need to be fancy, but if you want to get fancy then don’t let anyone hold you back. So bring a dessert on Easter Sunday to whatever service you choose to attend. Looking forward to celebrating.
Baptisms Easter Sunday

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.
