The theme for this year is: “Learning Together for Transformation of the World”
In-depth themes this year will be:
Living as a Covenant Community–Covenants are found in the Bible from the moment God created man and woman until the last page of Revelation. As we grow to understand the divine covenants made by God with our ancestors, and thus with us, our faith and our lives will transform. Through this study, we come to marvel at our covenant God, grow in our love for God, for each other, and for our neighbors near and far. Rev. Matt Richards will be the presenter
Missionary Conferences of UMC in USA–The Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference, Red Bird Missionary Conference, and the Alaska United Methodist Conference are a hybrid of home and internal missionary work. The aim of this study is to give an overview of these three missionary conferences in The UMC, the contexts out of which they grew, and their current engagements. Dawn Armstrong will be the presenter.
Climate Justice: Call to Hope and Action –This study will deepen your understanding and awareness of climate change and its impact on God’s creation. It offers participants biblical, theological and ethical insights as the basis of their advocacy on climate justice in churches and in the public sphere. Rev. Marty Toepke-Floyd will be the presenter.
