Learning Together for Transformation of the World
“Mission u” (formerly called “Mission Enrichment Weekend”) provides opportunities for persons to grow in understanding of the mission of the church in the current world context as well as initiate opportunities for spiritual and educational experiences. The time is spent in worship and in-depth study with music, prayer, sharing, exploring and much food for the body and the soul. It is a time-away for families, adults, youth and children of all ages.
This mission education experience for all ages will take place July 22-24, 2016 at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, NH. The 2016 Studies are:
The Bible and Human Sexuality (Spiritual Growth Study)
Climate Justice (Social Issue and Children and Youth Theme Study)
Mission u is for everyone… pastors, laity, families, youth and children. There are classes for both youth and children. Childcare will be available.
Bring some extra cash or your checkbook! An offering is always received at Mission u. It often is designated in part to support a mission project related to the geographic or social issue. Spirit Wind, the fair trade marketing connection to Nicaragua for the New England Conference, has a display with many handmade items for sale. The United Methodist Women have books for sale from the Reading Program.
Also bring your own linens, pillow, towels and toiletries including a cup. Additional details are in the letter you will receive after you register.
