Mission u of Indiana

Learning Together for the Transformation of the World

Each year, United Methodist Women members prepare for faithful living and action by studying more about mission. Three mission studies are offered at Mission u: geographical, a topical, and a spiritual growth study. These studies motivate, inform, and enrich our commitment to global ministry.

Mission u reflects the theology of the United Methodist Church and the practice of joining personal holiness with social holiness. Through worship, in-depth study, music, prayer, and sharing and exploring, we invite YOU to grow with us in understanding the mission of the church.
