Summer Mission u, July 16-18 or Fall Mission u, October 20-22

“We Are Called!”  That’s the theme of this year’s United Methodist Women Mission u, and we’re “calling” on women, men, youth, and children to share in a spiritual Covenant for Community, or your choice of study of the Missionary Conferences of the U.S., or Climate Justice. These events qualify for CEUs for pastors or professionals.

We have two dates from which you may choose: Summer Mission u, July 16-18, Sunday afternoon 3 p.m. to Tuesday afternoon; or Fall Mission u, October 20-22, Friday afternoon 3:30 p.m. to Sunday afternoon. Both are held at Iowa Valley Community College in Marshalltown, with several reasonably-priced hotels nearby for the two overnights.

Ask anyone who’s attended: it’s a wonderful experience to spend a couple of days learning, singing, worshiping, and eating delicious food, with United Methodist Women from around Iowa. You are called! Please answer!
