Our Sunday Teams exist to create an environment where every single person that walks into 1242 W. Addison to attend a worship gathering, would be met with the warmth, love, and joy of the Trinity and the Missio Dei Wrigleyville Family.
If we are a family, then this is a HOME. We are participating with the Father in welcoming His children into His house. And therefore, we look to our Father’s posture in His home toward the Prodigal son (Luke 15) as our queue to His heart and the way we welcome and serve those at Missio Dei Gatherings - JOY!
