Welcome from the Dean, Celia Wadsworth
Learning Together for Transformation of the World
For participants, 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. This year’s study topics are; “Living As A Covenant Community”, “Missionary Conferences of the United Methodist Church in the United States” and “Climate Justice: Call to Hope and Action”. The Children and Youth Studies are on the Missionary Conferences. More detailed information can be found under the “Mission Studies” heading. Study Leaders are certified through the United Methodist Women’s National Office and have prepared for several months to present well informed programs to their classes. Students, in turn, can present the information they learned in a study at their local churches if they desire.
Besides classes on the current study topics, Mission u includes Worship & Singing, Mission Projects, Audiovisual Presentations and Fellowship Events.
Participants will grow in understanding the mission of the church in the current world context. Arkansas Conference Mission u is open to everyone - members and non-members of United Methodist Women. Men are welcome!
We will again be on the beautiful campus of the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, AR. Check out the rest of the website for important information, dates, forms, questions/answers, etc. The date of this year’s school is July 26-29, 2017. Mark your calendar now and plan to attend Mission u 2017!
See you there,
Dean, Arkansas Conference Mission u 2017
