Get Ready for Mission u 2023!

July 21-23, 2023
Wesley UMC, Yakima, WA

Join us at Mission u as we explore the Good News and what it means for our lives!

Katherine Parker will be one of the Adult Study leaders.

Jesus’ teachings in the gospels proclaim the good news of the kingdom or reign (basileia) of God. In fact, Jesus mentions the kin-dom 90 times in the synoptic gospels! What does the Bible tell us about God’s basileia, and why do we call it the kin-dom? For Jesus, the kin-dom was not simply something to talk about but something we could live and experience. From the Lord’s Prayer to the beatitudes to the parables, this good news is at the heart of Jesus’ preaching, teaching, and ministry. 

Come! Let’s explore together the heart of Jesus’ good news and what fresh vision it offers us as we seek to be in mission today.

2023 Children’s Curriculum —
“We Are the Kin-dom!”

Through this curriculum, children will explore kingdoms, build a kingdom together as if it were an earthly realm, and think about things that earthly kingdoms do. Children will then explore God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. The final goal of this curriculum is to see all of us working together with the Holy Spirit to share whatever we have, like that little boy, to build a “kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.”

2023 Youth Curriculum —
“Seek and You Shall Find:
Living in the Kin-dom.”

In this youth curriculum, the overarching theme is teaching youth to find the kin-dom within the world around them and how to live what they have learned. Each of the eight sessions builds upon the one before it to introduce participants to finding the kin-dom in the world around them and how to tell others about the kin-dom. 

2023 Adult Curriculum —
“Living the Kin-dom”

This curriculum explores the Lord’s Prayer as recorded in Matthew 6:9–13. It is an invitation to take a deeper look at prayer and its role in our faith journeys. Moving from personal to communal application, the curriculum explores how the Lord’s Prayer helps us “live the kin-dom” and become a reflection of God’s love to the world.
