Mission Studies

Poverty: The Call: The Roma

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

Members take one of the three mission studies through the organization's Schools of Christian Mission program offered around the country.

By looking at these phenomena we hope to understand more fully the impact of globalization on human rights and the social, economic, and political development of various cultures and nations.

Children of the Bible

We invite you into the stories in the Bible from which we can glean the place of children in ancient times. Stories from both the Hebrew and Greek texts---the Old and New Testaments will call us once again to both love in the face of challenge and yes, to become like a child so that we too enter into the kingdom of God where the hungry are fed, the prisoners are freed and the children are whole people in Jesus Christ.
