Mission u offers 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 began July 19, two days before the main event to allow more time for building relationships and serving neighbors through hands-on work. The youth mission study will focus on climate justice.
Mission u is an annual event, sponsored jointly by the Conference Global Ministries team and the United Methodist Women. Mission u is 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.
There's a Sampler Day on Saturday, July 23 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.
Learn more about resources for the studies.
