Kids’ Day Camp is an intentional, vibrant, and fun space of discipleship for Missio kids and our friends and neighbors to learn about Jesus and grow closer in relationship to him (think Vacation Bible School, but better!!) It gives us the opportunity to reach more kids than just ours with the love of Jesus. We need your support to do this well.
To be part of the team that shares God's love with kids this summer, contact Yen.
Kids Day Camp exists to help kids grow closer to Jesus through songs, games, Bible stories, and crafts and to build relationships between families and the local church. It is hosted in partnership with Riversgate Church and Greater Portland Bible Church.
Who: Children 4-years-old through 5th grade graduates
When: Monday, July 8 – Friday, July 12, 9 AM – 12 PM. On Friday, families are invited to join us for a celebration and lunch from 12-2.

Missio will again be sending a team to Bangkok, Thailand to partner with the Envision team there. Our team will be supporting Envision through building relationships with young adults and university students, prayer walks through campus, leading a local church retreat, and more.
If you’d like more information about joining the team, or for an application, contact Robert.
Latasha Morrison, founder of 'Be the Bridge', believes, "the gospel is justice come to life”.
As a church we desire to learn and grow in how we can better express the justice of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our homes, neighborhoods, church, city, and beyond. Be the Bridge exists to do 3 things:
- INSPIRE the church to have a distinctive and transformative response to racial division, as it calls the Church to be present and intentional towards racial reconciliation.
- EQUIP bridge builders towards fostering and developing vision, skills and heart for racial unity.
- BUILD partnerships with existing organizations who have a heart for diversity, racial justice, restoration and reconciliation.
We invite you to come join us in this process of learning, growing, and living more fully the gospel of reconciliation and justice that Jesus has entrusted to us. For more information, click here.
Sundays, March 31 - June 9 from 6:30-8:30pm (Not meeting on 4/21)
Registration for this Spring cohort is now closed. Please be praying for the group that is meeting and watch for additional opportunities to engage in this conversation going forward.
A Missional Community (MC) is family of Christ followers who have been sent into the community to live intentional lives of mission & service together. To contact or learn more about each Missional Community, visit the MC Profiles page on our website.
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 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.

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.
- Worship team (both vocalists and instrumentalists)

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
