Next Steps

Next Steps

There is no one way to get involved in a church. As we see it here at Missio Dei, there are multiple entry points for people to get involved. In reality, it depends on who you are, what you need, and what drives your personality. For some, information is essential. For others, getting connected relationally is the priority. Others prefer a more formal process. The following Next Steps process provides the basic inroads into MDC that each person, despite their personality should consider. You can enter at any point. Jump in today!

Sign up on The City

The City is our own internal social networking hub. It is where all of the internal communication takes place among members and where the majority of information is disseminated about events and gathering points. If you are on The City, then you will know what is going on! 

Get on The City by emailing our Admin Coordinator or by stopping by the welcome table on Sunday morning!

Join a Community Group

Community is vital to the life and health of every church. It is vital because it is not just the context for growth, but also the conduit. Relationships are central to learning and experiencing God. Getting plugged into the body of Christ is therefore essential to experiencing God. After all, the spiritual journey is no consumer venture. Love means giving! You can visit a group by checking out the Community Groups page and contacting the leader or by visiting the welcome table on Sunday morning after church to meet one of the leaders.

Attend the Gospel Foundations Class

The Gospel Foundations Class is the place to learn about the values and core beliefs that shape our approach to life and faith. It is here where we share the story of God and how that story shapes our own story. If you are new to Jesus and the church, this is a good place to start. The Gospel Foundations Class is offered 3 times a year, once in the Fall, once in the Winter, and once in the Spring. 

Sign up for this class by emailing our Admin Coordinator or by registering for the next class here on our website. Browse the church calendar for the details.

Attend the MDC Foundations Class

The MDC Foundations Class is the sister class to the Gospel Foundations Class. The MDC Foundations Class focuses on how we as a church are seeking to implement the story of God here in Portland Maine. It is here that we discuss our church vision and strategy to embody and proclaim the Kingdom of God. If you are unfamiliar with our church and our core beliefs about Jesus, or even if you have been around for a while, this is a good place to start. The Gospel Foundations Class is offered 3 times a year, once in the Fall, once in the Winter, and once in the Spring.

Sign up for this class by emailing our Admin Coordinator or by registering for the next class here on our website. Browse the church calendar for the details.

Shadow-A-Servant

Getting involved in a faith community for some starts with Service! Getting your hands dirty and mixing it up with others who share a passion to serve is always a great way to get connected. The Shadow-A-Servant program is meant to partner you with someone who is serving in your areas of interest. Shadowing is a low commitment way to evaluate different ministries in a search of a good fit.

Sign up by emailing our Admin Coordinator or by MDC ministries page for the areas that you might like to explore.
