Mission Sunday, October 6th

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.
