Weekly Update 8.9.18
August 9, 2018
If we want to know how God feels about us we need to look at Jesus and watch the way he loves, embraces, and challenges the people around him. If we want to know how we should engage with the world, we need to look at Jesus and see how he always moves towards those he encounters. Join us this week at 9 or 11am as we continue in our series, Exclusion & Embrace.
MISSIO KIDS SUPPLY DRIVE
As you buy supplies for the upcoming school year, please consider picking up a few extras for Missio Kids! We are always flying through things like crayons, colored pencils, white copy paper, cardstock of all colors, scotch tape, masking tape, glue sticks, scissors, sticky notes, craft sticks, stickers, dot markers, stamp pads, and pom poms. Generally speaking, if your child's school classroom can use it, so can we at Missio Kids! All donations are greatly appreciated! You can drop off supplies with the Missio Kids Check-In volunteer.
MISSIO'S FOSTER FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP has grown into a wonderful family of support. Volunteers who care for the kids and teens have become close friends with the families. Parents have loved being with others who really understand what it's like to be a foster parent. In each meeting we share resources, advice, struggles and successes. Outside of the meetings, parents have been praying for, making meals and visiting each other to provide support. Since the group began meeting, children have joined families, left families, prepared to be adopted and have been adopted. Support from the group has been crucial during all of these big transitions. We are now welcoming foster families who do not attend Missio so that we can provide this support for others in the crazy world of foster care. We would love to have more volunteers care for our kids so that the ministry can grow! If you're interested in volunteering once or twice a month for 1 1/2 hours, please email Rachel.
