Mission u - Learning Together
for the Transformation of the World

Winter Mission u  rescheduled to Feb 17-18 at
Laurel UMC due to weather

   Deadline February 13th

Mission u rescheduled
Unsafe travel conditions, predicted bad weather and participant cancellation prompted my decision to reschedule Mission u. It has been moved to February 17th and 18th at Laurel United Methodist Church. We regret the inconvenience, we recognize the potential conflicts with previously scheduled events but we hope that it will be safer for everyone. Please feel free to contact Roxanne Roehl if you would like to attend the newly rescheduled Mission u and were unable to attend the first scheduled event. We will work out a system of refunding registrations for those who are unable to attend February 17th and 18th due to conflicts.
Questions, contact Diane Martin at 307-202-0628. Thank you for your understanding and may God bless you. Keep warm.
 
Dean, Diane Martin
 
Save the Date!  Summer Mission u will be July 21-22 at Butte Aldersgate.
Studies are 1) Living as a Covenant Community
                    2) Missionary Conferences of the United Methodist Church in the USA.
 

  More Information on the Mission Studies and books required for the classes can be found on the National UMW website.

  Books should be read in advance of Mission u.
