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.

- Spiritual growth: Living Sacramentally and Walking Justly

PovertyParticipants in the Poverty mission study will engage in deepening their understanding of the realities of poverty and be invited to commit to solidarity with the poor through accompaniment and advocacy.
