“Mission u: Learning Together for the Transformation of the World,” slated for July 23-26 at The Wesley Center in Woodworth, is an opportunity to study current issues impacting society and to grow in understanding of the mission of the church in the current world context.
Studies give particular attention to the responsibilities of women in the fulfillment of the mission work of the church. 2014 Mission Studies include Spiritual Growth (“How Is It with Your Soul?,” led by Rev. France Johnson Hooton), Geographic (“The Roma of Europe,” led by Rev. Bernadine Johnson), Issue study (“The Church and People with Disabilities,” led by Dolores G. Giles, Phyllis Jefferson, Millie Moore and Becky Poor), and Children and Youth study (“Disabilities and Our Response,” Kathleen Conrad and Natasha “Hope” Roberson
All adult attendees participate in the Spiritual Growth study and they choose either the Geographic or Issue study. Each study is scheduled for at least eight hours of class time; a secretary takes roll at each session. The documentation of attendance may be used to validate attendance for persons needing to meet requirements for certification (e.g. Lay Servant).
Registration forms are available for adults and youth (ages 12-18) and scholarships are available for “first time” attendees. For more information, contact Anita Hansberry at 2014 Dean; phone, (225) 766-3336: email, firstname.lastname@example.org
