ALL Leader Training | 08.26.17

August 26th, 2017

God has given everyone a unique opportunity to lead in some capacity. Whether you are leading yourself, a small group, or an entire organization, God has placed a call on your life to lead with excellence and joy!

We want to see this excitement for leadership and service at Portico! This is why we host our All Leader Training, a twice a year event focused on training, equipping, and encouraging leaders of all kinds in our church and community.

The All Leader Training will be on Saturday, August 26, and will be held at Cherrydale Baptist Church (3910 Lorcom Ln, Arlington, VA 22207). This event is mandatory for all current Portico leaders (elders, deacons, CG leaders, DG leaders, team lead). This training is also for those interested in leading at Portico and want to get more information as to what that looks like. We encourage all to make plans to join us for a day of training, eating, celebration, and fun!

Bring the entire family. We have an environment scheduled and staffed for onsite childcare during the training times (9 am - 12 pm).

The main training sessions will be held between 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and lunch will be provided from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.

Please register to this event and let us know if you will be bringing any little ones.

Looking forward to a great day with you!

Public Faith | 09.15.17

September 15th, 2017

Public Faith: Learning to Think Critically, Engage Winsomely, and Share the Love of Jesus in a Pluralistic Society

Do you have a desire for those around you to know Jesus, yet you wrestle with how to communicate the Gospel in the midst of a culture that often makes fun of those who are religious?

Come join us (and bring a friend) at the Portico Church Office (3240 Wilson Blvd. Suite 200 Arlington, 22201) on Friday, September 15, where Pastor of Urban Outreach Steve Reed will walk you through the following:

  • How to initiate the conversation in a disarming manner
  • How to overcome fears of sharing your faith
  • How to answer tough questions such as: You may live by faith, but I base my positions on evidence—why should I believe if you can’t prove God to me? How can you say that good people are lost just because they don’t believe in Jesus? I can’t believe in a God who allows so much suffering in the world. The Bible is historically unreliable and regressive, how can you seriously follow what it says in there?
  • How to apply the gospel to controversial topics of the day (ex. sex and gender issues)

There will be a teaching section, a Q & A, and a time to pray by name for those in your life who don’t know Jesus.

There will also be a casual hangout at a local spot afterward, for those who want to join.

The event will begin at 7:00 pm sharp, in order respect everyone's time. Please email Steve at sreed@porticoarlington.org if you want to attend but need to be late.

The Public Faith Group will meet once a month, covering a different topic each time.

Clarendon Day | 09.23.17

September 23rd, 2017

Dear Portico Church Arlington,

We have a fantastic opportunity to be present in our local community in a big way – Clarendon Day 2017.

Clarendon Day is an annual street fair which draws over 20,000 people for fun, food, and music. It is free and a great time for locals to gather together. Find out more HERE.

Being on mission together begins by being present in our cities. For a fourth year in a row Portico Church Arlington has signed up as a non-profit exhibitor at Clarendon Day. We are excited for this opportunity to get out and meet/serve our city.

As a non-profit exhibitor, we will have an official spot with a tent. Our goal is to connect with everyone at the event, letting them know we are here and encouraging them to come check out Portico. In the past couple years, this has brought us new attenders and now members! We will have some info sheets and some swell Portico-branded swag to hand out. We hope to make many new connections.

This is an all-hands-on-deck outreach. We are asking everyone who calls Portico Church home to join us in attending and serving at Clarendon Day on September 23.

Please sign up here to be a Clarendon Day event volunteer.

Contact Sammy Dial at sdial@porticoarlington.org with any questions or for more info about serving at Clarendon Day.
