Mission U Virtual Studies 2021

The North Georgia United Methodist Women Mission U team is presenting  Mission U Virtual Studies.  Mission U, like many other activities in our lives, has moved online. While virtual we are still creating ways for the community to connect and create lifelong friendship by engaging in lessons that will change us and our communities’ spiritual practices at a time when we need it the most.

MISSION U 2021 STUDIES

Finding Peace in an Anxious World

Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools
LEADERS:
 Rev. Anika Jones and Deaconess Elna Jo Sheetz
Even with obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes and despair, black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities and beyond, and challenges the rest of us to do the same.

Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence (YOUTH)
LEADERS: 
Rev. Elizabeth Pollard, Rev. Dr. Stephen Redmond
Throughout this study, the goal is to take time to have deeper conversations about how we define violence, what the root causes of violence are, and ultimately, how God is calling us to respond. At the same time, the study seeks to guide young people to develop their capacity as peacemakers as an expression of their faith.
Study is $10 per student. Study is designed for youth ages 13-17. No book is needed for this class.
