Mission u 2019

Friday, July 19, 2019, 4:00 PM

Mission u is an opportunity to study current issues impacting society based on current mission study topics with particular attention to the responsibilities of women in fulfilling the mission work of the church. We offer a one-day sampler for adults, youth (entering 8th grade through completed 12th grade) and children (completed kindergarten through completed 7th grade) on Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Adult Sampler includes short presentations of all three studies, a continental breakfast, lunch, and its own focus groups. The Children’s Sampler also gives an abbreviated presentation which includes the study, crafts, and music.  The three-day experience starts Friday evening and goes until noon on Sunday. Friday’s dinner, Saturday’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner plus Sunday’s breakfast are included with lodging. Commuter’s registration includes Saturday’s lunch but other meals are at the attendee’s expense but can be purchased at the door of the cafeteria. Friday evening has a plenary and the first Bible/Spiritual Growth study. On Saturday, there are two sessions with one of the area studies. One study is in a particular geographical area; the other is on a social issue. Each of these studies is offered for two years with the studies changing on different years to enable participants to take one the first year and the other the next year. Saturday night brings a special dinner followed by a special program to go along with the year’s theme. Sunday brings the second Spiritual Growth session along with a closing worship and communion service. PLEASE NOTE: Study books are no longer available through UMW Resources. What this means is you will need to order the books before Mission u. DO NOT expect to purchase books at Mount Union. You can order through Cokesbury, Amazon or another book retailer.
