West Ohio
2024 Mission u

West Ohio Mission u is sponsored by the the West Ohio United Women in Faith and West Ohio Conference of the United  Methodist Church.

Mission u reflects the theology of The United Methodist Church and the practice of joining personal holiness with social holiness.  Through worship, in-depth study, music, prayer, sharing and exploring, we invite you to grow with us in understanding the mission of the church.

Interested in deepening your faith in community? Gaining experience interpreting Scripture? Working toward healing for yourself, your community, and all of creation? Mission u is for you!

Each year, United Women in Faith develops justice-focused Biblical curriculum, on a common theme. In 2024, our theme is The Kin-dom Is Among You: Drawing Closer to God and One Another. In 2025, the theme will be Hope as Resurrection People.

Welcome Home explores how we can know God as an intimate friend who welcomes us. Abiding in God’s safety and dwelling in God’s provision, allows us to open our hearts to a fuller embrace of the power and presence of God so that we may find our home in God. Participants are invited to dig deeper into what it means to live in the kin-dom of God and how this helps us to develop practices for building and existing in healthier communities.

Author Neomi Fletcher leads participants through a journey in eight one-hour explorations that start with examining home and redefining what it means in light of Scripture’s repeated invitations to dwell with God as individuals, community members, and persons of faith.

Cultivating Symbiosis: The Nature of God’s Kin-dom is a youth curriculum that uses the idea of symbiosis to explore relationships with others and with God. Youth will examine different kinds of relationships and understand them as an ongoing journey toward the kin-dom. There is a symbiosis between our relationships to each other as humans and our relationship to God. By drawing closer to one another, we can draw closer to the kin-dom. By drawing closer to one another, we can collectively move, step by step, toward creating God’s kin-dom on earth as it is in heaven.

 

Through eight one-hour sessions, youth and their facilitators will more deeply explore what it means to live into the kin-dom of God through the lens of symbiosis. Youth will first explore what symbiosis means and that it exists on a continuum. They will examine their personal relationships and how they mirror or contrast what God desires, understanding that to love God is to love your neighbor and to love your neighbor is to love God. Youth will then move outward in their understanding of relationships and God’s kin-dom by looking at economic injustice and how they can collectively work toward social justice.
