Weekly Update 3.29.18
March 29th, 2018
Easter is this Sunday and we're gathering together, inviting the neighborhood, and throwing a huge party to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. We don't party just because it's fun (though it is) but because in our joy, worship, and above in the hope displayed we point to Jesus and His victory over sin and death. We party because in our celebration the world gets a little taste of what it means to participate in the resurrection of Jesus.
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.
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
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.
