United Methodist Women
The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Mission u 2019 was held at Dakota Wesleyan in Mitchell SD (Southern Site) on July 11-14 and at the University of Jamestown in Jamestown ND (Northern Site) on July 18-21.
Participants took a deep dive into the Gospel of Mark, the topic of money, and the inspiring story of women organized for mission in the 2019 Mission Studies:
- The Spiritual Growth Study is “Practicing Resurrection: The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship” was taught by Marty Toepke-Floyd.
- The History Study is “Women United for Change: 150 Years in Mission” was taught by Jodi Cataldo.
- The Issue Study is “What About Our Money? A Faith Response” was taught by Sheri Meister at the Southern Site and by Jeff Pospisil at the Northern Site.
