What comes after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus? The birth of the church and the extension of Jesus' mission to and through his people. But, what does that mean for us? What does it mean to be Jesus' people on his mission in the world? What does it mean to be the church? 

The Peoples Theology
David Foster Wallace, in his now very famous commencement speech, tells a story about two fish and in it, he asks a question, "what is water?" Meaning, what are the pieces of our world we don't recognize but are fundamental to its existence?  In this episode we try and answer that question, what is water. *podcast includes two expletives.

Email Anna Nelson if you have any questions. We will be hosting a volunteer information meeting on Sunday May 6th in the chapel from 10:30-11:00 am. Please join us if you are interested in helping in any capacity!

Open Table
The story of the gospel is embodied each week as we gather around the table. That table should shape our lives, hearts and imaginations.  We can live as the people of Jesus by gathering around the table and providing a meal for the people in need throughout our community. Join us April 26th to serve our community. Email Christin Hyde for more info.

Sunday Serve
For the last three years, we have been participating as a community in serving our city on a Sunday.  On May 20th we'll be worshiping differently by going out and serving North West Middle School and Spectrum Academy and also serving our tenants and working together to steward our own property at Missio. To learn more about it and sign up go here.

Child Dedication
May 13th 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 May 1st). We look forward to partnering with you as you make a public declaration of commitment to your child's spiritual growth. Register HERE.
