It's a great way to start off the New Year. There will be designated times of both communal space (with Scripture reading, reflection, and optional sharing) as well as large portions of time alone with the Creator.

100 Days with Jesus // Jan. 7

Screen Shot 2017-12-27 at 3.49.02 PM.png

Starting Jan. 7, Missio will be starting a journey of 100 days with Jesus. We believe Jesus loves us and wants to know us, and has created us to journey through life in relationship with him and others. The book "100 Days with Jesus" will help us to know Jesus more fully as we read his Scripture, reflect on who he is, and share with one another as we meet him along the way. Books will be available at Missio starting Sunday, Jan. 7.

As we journey together, share what you’re hearing with others! God’s words to you can be an encouragement to those around you, so talk with your family, friends, and Missional Community about what you’re learning and how the challenge of daily reading and reflecting is going. Check out our 100 Days with Jesus Facebook group to share your thoughts and be encouraged by how others are hearing from Him.

Work as Worship // Friday, Feb. 23

Many people spend a great deal of time at work and yet they don’t see how their work intersects with their faith. Part of our growth as followers of Jesus is realizing that there isn’t a divide between the sacred and secular parts of our lives and that working with our God-given skills can be an act of worship. Come learn with others and be encouraged to live into a more holistic understanding of your work and faith.

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
