Mission Sunday, October 6th
This Sunday is Mission Sunday from 10-10:50am at Gloria Dei!
3rd - 5th grade students will participate in the mission projects that will be taking place around the building.
If you will be participating in Mission Sunday as a family, and want your 3rd-5th grader to serve with you, they will be dismissed for Mission Sunday after Opening in rooms 11-13, 15-17 (aka Undercroft).
If you are not participating in the Mission Service Projects as a family, students in 3rd-5th grade will have the opportunity to serve with their grade group.
After serving, you can arrange to meet them in the Opening room (aka Undercroft) at 10:50am.
Several of the projects have a messy component, please dress accordingly.
A little about Mission Sunday, from Joshua Poencet
What is Mission Sunday you ask?
Mission Sunday started 3 years ago as a way for our congregation to build community together while serving others in our neighborhood and beyond the church walls. This is a time to connect and be transformed through acts of kindness together.
Here's what Oct. 6th Mission Sunday service projects look like:
Channel One, Empty Bowls
Family Promise, Freezer Meals
Bring your Rake and help rake our neighborhood!
Contemplation and Prayer Walk, bring your walking shoes as we start with a contemplative practice and then go on a walk around the neighborhood sharing joy, prayer and fun and positive messages for our neighbors
Love in a Glove box kits (Ever see someone on a corner with a sign and want to help, but don't have anything, make a Love in the Glove Box kit and have them ready in your car to share)
Threads TLC Fall Edition
And Help harvest and weed in the Garden
Join us for community building as we serve our neighbors.
3rd - 5th grade assignments from Joshua
After Opening in Undercroft, grades 3-5 will go to the following areas with their group:
5th Grade - Garden Lounge for Empty bowls
After the group is done they'll move to Threads or go to their closing/pick up area
4th grade - Kitchen for Family Promise freezer meals
After they are done, they'll have a chance to go out to the garden for some weeding (If the weather is bad, head to empty bowls in the garden lounge or return to the closing/pick up spot)
3rd grade - Fireside Room for LOVE in the Glove Box
Afterwards, 3rd grade can move to the Garden Lounge for empty bowls or return to their closing/pick up area.
All 3rd-5th grade groups will return to the Undercroft (rooms 11-13, 15-17) for closing ritual and may be picked up from that location at 10:50am.
