    For 2015, the United Methodist Women of the Upper New York Conference will offer three Mission u weekend throughout the summer and early fall, for study and reflection.

    The Central Region, or Region 2, will meet July 17-19 at Cazenovia College. The Western Region, or Region 3, will meet July 30-Aug. 1 at the Asbury Camp & Retreat Center on Silver Lake in Perry. The Eastern Region, or Region 1, will meet Sept. 11-13 at the Silver Bay YMCA Conference Center near Lake George.

    All three venues are open to both men and women; Region 2 is open to the entire family, as classes are geared toward youth and children as well as adults.

    Similar to previous years, there will be three studies offered at each location.

    • Spiritual Growth – Created for Happiness: Understand Your Life in God
    • Geographic – Latin America: People & Faith
    • Social Issue – The Church and People with Disabilities

    Mission u, formerly known as School of Christian Mission, was created by Methodist women “to educate women and inspire them to a sense of mission at home and around the world,” according to Mission u’s website. Though the schools were originally for women, the demographic has since expanded to also include men, children, and youth at the studies.
