Living our Mission, being the hands and feet of Christ.
You are invited to attend the United Women in Faith of the Pacific Northwest Conference Annual Meeting.
Paul writes, “Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward – to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. — Philippians 3:14-19 (MSG)
Keynote Speaker: United Women in Faith’s National President, Ainise Isama’u
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.
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.”
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.
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.
Join the Pacific Northwest Conference United Women in Faith as we look at the characteristics of women as thinkers, problem solvers, caregivers, feisty, strong, loving, made in the image of God. Rev. Shalom R. Agtarap, pastor and developer serving at First UMC Tacoma, will lead us.
