Here’s an overview of the studies offered this year:

Women United for Change: 150 Years in Mission By Ellen Blue

    The first in a two-year study commemorating United Methodist Women’s 150th anniversary, it provides a      historical survey of United Methodist Women and amplifies the voices that shaped the work of United Methodist Women changing the face of mission. Each was a heroine, willing to stand over and against what her culture—and sometimes even her church—expected of her. Learning about the early female leaders who created what would become today’s United Methodist Women can help us understand who they truly were beyond who we expected them to have been.

Spiritual Growth Study: Practicing Resurrection: The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship by Janet Wolf

Author Janet Wolf explores what it means to live a life of radical discipleship today using the Gospel of Mark as the foundation. Wolf explores the timeless issues of poverty, gender, justice, liberation, equality, and others using Mark as a guide. The stories of the women in Mark are a particular focus in this study and how, although often unnamed, they are prominent among Jesus’ followers and in Mark’s recounting of the gospel story.

2018-2019 Issue Study What About Our Money? A Faith Response By Susan K. Taylor

In a repeat from last year, this study explores how we relate to money within the context of our faith. Through this connection between our faith and our money, readers discover how to live closer to God and God’s people, even in our North American culture that is so deeply defined by money. She explores the biblical foundation of abundance (sufficiency), which stands in opposition to the scarcity narrative our culture tells us from the time we are very young.  This is the second year for this study and it will only be offered at the Boise First UMC and Lake Oswego UMC Mission u’s.

Last, but not least, we will celebrate 150 years of our United Methodist Women complete with cake and ice cream – Yum!

Copies of the Mission Study books can be ordered from the UMW Mission Resources.
