UNITED WOMEN IN FAITH
Great news— Community is God’s desire for us! Please join us at Mission u 2022 as we reflect on the community that Jesus is calling us to be!
This year, as we study Luke 13, we find ourselves in a period of disruption and uncertainty. In the midst of a devastating pandemic, divisive political climate, unaddressed systemic racism, ecological crises and eco-nomic turmoil, we turn to the stories of Jesus that have anchored Christian communities for two millennia.
Our hope is that we will leave Mission u with a bigger and broader vision of the community Christ is call-ing us to be in times of loss, grief and massive disruption. What would be possible if we tend to the needs of our communities in small yet radical ways, as Jesus did in Luke 13?
Our newly designed Mission u 2022 is more flexible and intergenerational than ever— with curricula for youth, children and adults focused on the 13th chapter of the Gospel of Luke.
Will you join us?
The first activity on our Retreat July 22-23 will be supper together Friday at 5:15 p.m. You will want to arrive at about 4:00 p.m. to register in Bica Ross dormitory and move into your room before supper. Immediately after supper we will divide into our groups: adult, youth, and children and begin with worship and learning. At 8:00 p.m. everyone will move to the campfire space for some time together.
Saturday morning will begin with breakfast at 7:30-8:15 a.m. At 9:00 a.m. we will divide into our groups again. Adults will have a community project. District Treasurers will have training with Kelly. We will be together for lunch, and divide into our groups and be finished at approximately 2:30 p.m.
