Mission u: Learning Together for the Transformation of the World

May 04, 2021

What it is: Each year, United Methodist Women prepare for faithful living and action by participating in Mission u, a transformative education program that is intended to motivate, inform and enrich our commitment to be in ministry for a more just and equitable world, locally and globally. 

Mission u in 2021 - Virtual: We have known and felt what it is like when “things are falling apart on us.” We have experienced a great unraveling that has shifted, quite literally, everything. Could there be, as 2 Corinthians put it, “far more here than meets the eye?”

Mission u, like many activities in our lives, has moved online. While virtual, we are still creating spaces for spiritual community, lifelong friendships, lessons that change us and our communities, and spiritual practices that arrive when we need them most. In a time when it looks like things are falling apart on us, God’s grace is still unfolding and life is being made new.

At our upcoming virtual Mission u, we will learn more about the culture of violence that impacts children in and out of schools. Our 2021 Mission u will offer the following virtual study FREE: 

  • Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools by Monique Morris. 

If the pandemic subsides by the Fall, we hope to do the studies below in person:

  • Bearing Witness in the Kin-dom: Living Into the Church’s Moral Witness Through Radical Discipleship by Darryl W. Stephens
  • Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence: A Curriculum for Youth Leaders by Jay Godfrey
  • Responding to Violence: A Curriculum for Children’s Facilitators by Sue Raymond
