Missions Emphasis Week

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

It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the gentiles, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.

Slow down

Slow Down

Monday-Thursday | 8:00AM-5:00PM | Quad

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.
