Prayer & Worship Night | 11.17.17

Come join us for a Prayer and Worship Night, Friday, November 17 at 7:30 pm at the Portico Church Office.

We will spend our time together in prayer for our church and our city, as we ask God to prepare us to be ambassadors of God in all areas of our lives - from our work, to our relationships, to our church.

We will also spend time in worship, as we remember the grace of God in our lives in that he provides for and sustains us, and calls us into His magnificent work of building the church and transforming lives by the power of the Gospel.

All are welcome! Let us know you will be attending by registering HERE.

If you have questions, please contact Pastor of Worship + Leadership Jonny Reeve at jreeve@porticoarlington.org

Work Day: Service with Community Residences | 11.18.17

Community Residences (a group that assists adults with disabilities) asked Portico if we can help out with some yard work and clean up at a home in N. Arlington (address TBD). We'll be helping on Saturday November 18 from 9am-Noon.

This is a huge service to their organization and individuals they support. Duties may include raking leaves, pulling weeds, and cleaning windows. There's also potential for some power washing if they can find the equipment!

Please pray and consider whether this is a way you can support and love the people of Arlington! Portico has a long-standing relationship of service with this organization!

You can register here. Matthew Walker will email you an address and instructions a few days before November 18. With any questions, please email Matthew at outreach@porticoarlington.org. Thanks!
