Mission u 2017

Thursday, July 27- Sunday, July 30

California University of Pennsylvania

See  the 2016 Mission u photo collection. 

Mission u is an annual event offering a variety of opportunities for adults, youth and children to grow spiritually, learn about issues affecting society and experience Christian mission in its many forms. Youth Mission u for youth in grades 6-12 begins two days before the main event to allow more time for building relationships and serving neighbors through hands-on work. 

Mission u is sponsored jointly by the Conference Global Ministries team and the United Methodist Women. Set up as a long weekend at California University of Pennsylvania, beginning Thursday evening. The  schedule allows for participation for those who can't arrive until Friday. Families are encouraged to attend and discount rates are offered for family members who room together.  

There's a Sampler Day on Saturday for anyone who would like to try it for a day.  Even if you haven't registered for Sampler Day, you can come and pay at the door.
