MISSION u 2024
This year’s theme, Welcome Home is an adult curriculum that 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.

This will be presented in a two-day school July 12-13 at Country Cupboard Inn, Lewisburg. One day events on July 11 at Country Cupboard Inn, Lewisburg and on July 27 at Chambers Hill UMC. Online school is July 2, 9, 16, 23.
