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.
MEW Theme for 2020
During MEW, you'll have the chance to meet missionaries, learn global news, and widen your perspective of missions though:
- Mission Chats: Throughout the week, missionaries will be conducting various mission talks. These will be held virtually through zoom and handshake.

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.
