The Bible Class – Starting Sunday, February 26th, 9:30am
If we’re honest, we can admit that the Bible is a weird book. Maybe it’s the talking snake on page 3, the strange Laws of Leviticus, or the horrors of the histories––whatever it is, a lot of us have a lot of questions about the Bible.
On February 26th at 9:30am, Missio is hosting The Bible class where we will spend three weeks answering three of the biggest questions we have about the Bible: What is it? Where did it come from? What are we supposed to do with it?This class is for everybody. Maybe you’ve been reading the Bible for 20 years, maybe you just started, or maybe you’ve totally rejected it––either way, this class is for you. Register here

Ash WednesdayWednesday, March 1st, 7:00pm
Ash Wednesday is the start of a new season in the Church, a season that leads through Lent, Holy Week, and up to the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter. It’s a chance to orient our minds and prepare our hearts so that we can experience all that God has done and is doing.
This year for Ash Wednesday, we will gather as a community on March 1st at 7 PM to worship with art, song, and Scripture. Everyone is invited. Children are welcome to join but there will be childcare for children 5 and under.

Easter Interest Meeting – Sunday, March 5th
Easter is coming and we’re looking to put together a team of people who are interested in providing some vision for what the celebration for that day will look like. If you’re interested in speaking into that or are just want in helping out in some capacity, we invite you to join us in the Volunteer Lounge after either service on Sunday, March 5th. There will be meetings following both the 9 and 11 am service.

Culture Forum – Faithful Presence: Saturday, March 11th, 5:30pm
The Bible repeatedly calls us to care for and welcome refugees, but what does that actually look like for a local church living in Salt lake City, Utah? On March 11th at 5:30pm, we will be gathering together to answer that very question. What does it mean for the church to show up in this need? How can we as individuals show up? The night will include various talks, a panel discussion, art from refugee camps in Jordan, and most importantly an opportunity to live out your passion for refugees in a way that matters. Childcare will be available, please register your child(ren) HERE
