Missions Emphasis Week

MEW promotes global awareness, relationships, opportunities, and service. Come experience culture as you indulge in new foods and connect with missionaries to find out what is happening around the world and how you can be a part of it.

Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.

We live in a culture that tells us to speed up. This experience is designed to provide you ways to slow down through sharing your story with a friend, writing in a journal, painting, or just stopping to enjoy nature. Many cultures around the world take time to enjoy the simple things. May you embrace slowing down through this experience.
