WHat to Expect
Missio Dei gathers weekly on Sundays at 10am at Rogers Lane Elementary School. The school is located at
201 N. Rogers Ln, Raleigh, NC.
Here’s a few things you can expect if you gather with us on Sunday:
Scripture & Liturgy
Each week we seek to follow consistent aspects of worship. One of these aspects will be reading Scripture aloud together, and also reciting ancient creeds and confessions like The Apostle’s Creed. Each service will also conclude with a benediction that is typically a passage of Scripture.
If you gather with us, you can expect music to be a blend of both modern and historical music that seek to glorify Christ. Our leadership seeks to lead us in songs that are biblically faithfully, theologically accurate, and thematically tied to the sermon that morning.
We believe every gathering should be marked by prayer. As such, we will strive to foster an atmosphere of prayer and reflection throughout the service. In addition to that, our elders will lead the congregation in a time of prayer each Sunday at the beginning of service, as well as during the Lord’s Supper.
At Missio Dei, our typical practice is to preach through whole books of the Bible walking through consecutive passages each Sunday. It is our aim that each sermon points to Jesus as the ultimate hero, the final fulfillment, and victorious King of the whole of Scripture. Throughout the week, our Missional Communities will discuss and apply each Sunday’s text with one another in the attempt to be doers of the Word and not merely hearers.
The Lord’s Supper
We take the Lord’s Supper every Sunday in order to remember Christ’s atoning sacrifice and death, and our identity as members of one another. This is also a time for repentance and renewal in our commitment to remember our future hope. We ask that all non-Christians abstain from taking the Lord’s Supper as this is a practice reserved for those whose hope and faith is in Christ alone. If you gather with us during this time it is our hope that you will take Christ Himself first and foremost.
We believe that the congregation gathering together is an important and essential part of Christian discipleship. Within that, we are also convinced that it is good for Christians of all ages to do so together as one body regularly. Therefore, we welcome children into our worship gatherings, and highly encourage parents to bring their children along with them as we believe that it is good and healthy for children to witness their mothers and fathers worshiping their Lord and Savior and joining alongside them in praise and adoration. Children are a gift from the Lord, so we don’t mind a little noise! However, we do still provide childcare (currently) for infants through 2 years of age.
At Missio Dei, we long to see believers grow into the image and likeness of Christ. We believe one way God accomplishes this is through missional community: living life together and challenging one another to grow as disciples of Christ. We desire to be a church where meaningful relationships are formed, in the spirit of Hebrews 10:25.
MDC Missional Communities are a place for our members (and guests) to begin living out our core values of Gospel-Centered Discipleship, Loving Community, and Missional Living. MCs meet weekly throughout the fall and spring around the following pursuits:
Fellowship & Prayer
Evangelism and Disciple-Making
Get in Touch
If you’re interested in visiting or joining one of our Missional Communities, please talk with one of our MC leaders or contact us via email.
We believe that the most important and valuable way to be involved in Missio Dei Church is through covenant membership.
If you are interested in becoming a member at MDC (or if you just want to learn more about us), the first step is to attend our membership class. There you will have the opportunity to learn and ask questions about our church community and our various areas of ministry. Afterward, you will be able to fill out our prospective member packet and meet with one of our elders. We also ask that all seeking membership at MDC be an active part of one of our Missional Communities. This process concludes with new members being introduced to the church family at one of our Members’ Meetings, which are for new and current members.
