Join us as we engage in the rhythm of prayer this summer! We are gathering not only to ask of the Lord, but also seek His voice. Each gathering will include a brief teaching/sharing about "listening prayer" and time to practice what we're learning. Our desire is that these gatherings will be safe spaces in which we can all grow in hearing from God in the various ways that He speaks to each of us.

WHEN: Wednesday nights, 6:30-7:30pm, July 11-August 29
WHERE: Check THIS LINK each week for the most updated prayer gathering location info

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality // June 18 - August 13

emotionally-healthy-spirituality.jpg

"It's impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature." - Pete Scazzero

Following Jesus and modeling our lives after Him is an endeavor that involves our whole person.  However, for many, it can be difficult to connect the dots between the truths in Scripture and what is happening in our hearts and in our relationships. The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course is an eight-week course that helps us dig beneath the surface and explore the deeper issues in our hearts that affect the ways we relate with others, ourselves, and God. In a safe, committed, and supportive small group, we will learn how contemplative spirituality can help us become more emotionally and relationally healthy, which will enable us to love God and others with our whole hearts.

TOPICS
June 18: Introductory dinner
June 25: The problem of emotionally unhealthy spirituality
July 2: Know yourself that you may know God
July 9: Going back in order to go forward
July 16: Journey through the Wall
July 23: Enlarge your soul through grief and loss
July 30: Discover the rhythms of the daily office and sabbath

Serving Opportunities at Missio

A fantastic way to get plugged into the Missio Community is to serve! Here are a few ways to share your giftings, talents and time:

MISSIO KIDS
Missio Kids exists to partner with parents in discipling their children toward knowing Jesus and making Him fully known in the world. We have four different classes where we serve kids ages birth through 5th grade and volunteers serve once a month on a regular rotation. As a weekly team, we pray together before each Expression, work together to set up and tear down all our classrooms, and get to know one another as we serve kids and parents each month. 
Current needs:
- 4 2s & 3s Volunteers
- 4 Pre-K/Kindergarten Teacher’s Assistants
- 4 Elementary Teacher’s Assistants
- 2 Check-in Volunteers
Contact: Amy@missioportland.org // (503) 961-3456

WORSHIP
The vision of our worship ministry is to become authentic worshipers of Jesus in our every day lives and allow that identity to shape our communal worship gatherings. We serve on Sundays by leading worship through song, prayer, and readings from the stage. We also serve by performing behind the scenes tasks, such as running sound, slides, and organizing the different people serving on a given Sunday.
Current needs:
- Worship team (both vocalists and instrumentalists) 
- Media
- Sound
Contact: Kelly@missioportland.org // (503) 550-1950

SETUP & BREAKDOWN
The vision of the Missio Setup & Breakdown Team is to create a space where people can enter with minimal distractions and engage worship fully. We serve on Sundays by transforming the gym and other classrooms into spaces of worship as well as setting the rooms back in order so that the school can continue the work of educating and caring for the community. 
Current Needs: 4-6 Volunteers
Contact: Joel@missioportland.org // (503) 307-3949
 
GREETERS
Greeters are some of the first people guests and the Missio family see and interact with at a Sunday Expression. We serve by greeting people as they come through the door, answering questions they may have about Missio, introducing and connecting people to one another, and helping people navigate Sunday Expressions. 
Current Needs: 3 Greeters
