Mission u 2017
Fri, Jul 21, 2017, 9:00 AM – Sun, Jul 23, 2017, 4:00 PM EDT
Mission u (formerly called Schools of Christian Mission) is an annual experience of ministry, spiritual growth, mission studies, and focus groups on current social concerns, mission projects and programs, special ministries, and other topics of interest. Mission u is usually held on the third weekend in July at the University of Mount Union. We offer a one-day sampler for the adult & children studies on Friday from 9:00 AM through 4:00 PM. The Adult Sampler includes short presentations of all three studies, a continental breakfast, lunch, and its own focus groups. The Children’s Sampler also gives an abbreviated presentation which includes the study, crafts, and music. The children also usually perform some of the music they learn.
The three-day experience starts Friday evening and goes until noon on Sunday. Friday’s dinner, Saturday’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner plus Sunday’s breakfast are included with lodging. Commuter’s registration includes Saturday’s lunch but other meals are at the attendee’s expense but can be purchased at the door of the cafeteria. Friday evening has a plenary and the first Bible/Spiritual Growth study. On Saturday, there are two sessions with one of the area studies. One study is on a particular geographical area; the other is on a social issue. Each of these studies is offered for two years with the studies changing on different years to enable participants to take one the first year and the other the next year. Saturday night brings a special dinner followed by a special program to go along with the year’s theme. Sunday brings the second Spiritual Growth session along with a closing worship service and Communion service.
In 2016, men were invited to the Sampler for an introduction to Mission u. Due to the positive input from this experience, the men are being welcomed again this year to the Sampler.
In 2018, the plan is to be able to include men in the 3-Day experience as well.
