Gatherings are held at Dater Montessori School on Sunday mornings at 10a.
Showing up unannounced to a church you've never been to before can be a little daunting at times. Here's what a regular weekend at Missio Dei looks like:
Worship at Missio Dei at a Sunday morning gathering centers around corporate song and liturgical readings. Although we believe worship is happening continually through song, reading, teaching, fellowship, etc... you'll mainly see it practiced during corporate singing.
We also believe that all of humanity shares in certain aspects of the Gospel story, so don't get freaked out if you hear us reading something off of the screens in unison- it's us recognizing that fact and embracing it. Expect to hear modern renditions of old sacred songs, newer contemporary worship music, and liturgical readings from new and old texts alike.
Check out this Spotify playlist for an idea of some of the tunes we jam out to, or listen to some Missio original music here.
We don't take the vision of being Gospel Centered lightly. Expect to hear passionate, biblical preaching on the weekend where we'll read through a section of text together before one of our pastors breaks it down and helps apply it's truths practically.
We should probably have links here to our collective pages that explain how we approach the gospel, link back to our core values, etc.
We believe that whenever the Gospel is proclaimed, it evokes a response in those witnessing it. At Missio, we usually respond through communion, prayer, and giving. To learn more about what we believe check out out Statement of Faith here.
Interested in getting to know some of us before coming to a gathering?
We'd love to have you stop by one of Missio's Community Groups and get connected with people that are apart of Missio before a gathering.
You can learn more about them here.
Life together in a messy pursuit of Jesus.
We were made for community. No one exists to do life on their own. We need spaces made up of people from all generations of life, to share stories, eat meals, pray, and study God’s Word. We need a space where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No community is perfect, and no two communities are exactly the same; we don’t expect them to be, because people are messy and so is our pursuit of Jesus.
Missio Kids is built around 3 simple concepts:
1. Gospel - Teaching God's word in ways I can understand.
2. Family - Continuing the story at home with loved ones.
3. Friends - Expressing the love of Jesus to those around me.
Each Sunday, your child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. We also seek to help equip parents to train their children in the gospel through resources like family guides for our lessons, weekly activities, and resources for home. Ultimately, the goal of Missio Kids is to get kids excited about Jesus and to get families talking about Jesus together throughout the week.
