Advent 2018 & End of The Year Giving

Year End Giving.jpg

Each year our Advent/Year End Giving is an opportunity for us to reflect upon and reflect out in the world, the extravagant and generous love of God as he sent his only Son into the world to take the form of a man in order to save the world. This year Missio’s Advent/Year End Giving, which is an offering of Hope, Joy, Love, and Peace in addition to our regular giving, will be distributed equally between the following three Kingdom building causes::

Safe Families for Children PDX
Safe Families for Children is a movement fueled by compassion to keep children safe and families intact. Through Host Families, Family Friends, and Family Coaches, they empower families to temporarily host children and provide a network of support to other families in crisis while they get back on their feet.

Core Values: Radical Hospitality. Compassion fueled by Mercy. Disruptive Generosity. 

Paradise Alliance Church (PAC) Community Rebuilding Efforts
Because of the fires raging in Paradise, CA over the past month, PAC lost their church building and 90% of the congregation have lost their homes. PAC has a huge challenge ahead as they seek to recover and rebuild their own lives, but they also feel called to their city, and see that the long-term opportunity for sharing the gospel with their neighbors is amazing as they support and minister to others in this season too!

Envision Bangkok Thai National Staff Intern
TouLee & Tang (our lead Ministry Partners in Bangkok Thailand ) are looking to hire the first Thai national Staff Intern in 2019! The total cost to support a national intern is $12,000/year. This is a huge step in continuing to raise up disciples of Jesus among the Thai people, empowering Thais to reach Thais with the gospel of Jesus, and one day turning the leadership of the ministry over to the Thai people.

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

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

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
