These events are centered around Mission u curricula that are designed to motivate, inform, and enrich our commitment to global ministry. This year all Mission u events will be virtual.

They are all Friday evening/Saturday Zoom events. The Mission u team and our study leaders are all busy preparing for inspiring spiritual, educational, caring fellowship that is interactive. Blessings to you as we continue to follow God’s lead living into our Purpose.

You can register for all three virtual mission u studies for only $50.00 if you register for all 3 at once!!! Best deal ever!  If you want to attend only one or two of the studies, each event is $20.  We will also be collecting an offering for our mission giving.

Join us in the summer of 2021 for three outstanding studies:

June 25-26, 2021 – Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence

Study Leader – Rachel Mosher

2021 Youth Study for all ages

This mission study is written for those interested in working alongside youth on issues of violence. Throughout this study, the goal is to take time to have deeper conversations about how we define violence, what the root causes of violence are, and ultimately, how God is calling us to respond. At the same time, the study seeks to guide young people to develop their capacity as peacemakers as an expression of their faith. Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence (a curriculum for Youth Leaders) by Jay Godfrey – Available from Mission Resource Center, http://www.umwmissionresources.org/shopping_product_detail.asp?pid=53505

July 23-24, 2021 – Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools

Study Leader – Billie Fidlin with Khalil Rushdan

2021 Issue Mission Study

Despite increased attention to the mass and over-incarceration of black men, the plight of criminalized black women and girls is overlooked, underreported and under analyzed. Monique W. Morris’ Pushout shows how even with obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes and despair, black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities and beyond, and challenges the rest of us to do the same. Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools by Monique Morris – Available from Amazon or at your local library. https://www.amazon.com/Pushout-Criminalization-Black-Girls-Schools/dp/1620973421/

Stephens. Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence by Darryl W. Stephens – Available from Mission Resource Center, https://www.umwmissionresources.org/shopping_product_detail.asp?pid=53499
