The news in early September is flooded with stories about Hurricane Dorian, a category 5 hurricane, which struck the Bahamas on Labor Day, and threatened Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and other points on the United States’ East Coast. Help will be needed as The United Methodist Church responds:
- Pray God’s peace for those affected and their families and friends
- Make a monetary donation to UMCOR
- Assemble flood buckets
- Volunteer? Yes, yes, yes! You can be God’s hands and feet.
Saturday, October 19, @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm | $45
The Eastern PA Conference’s Disaster Response ministry team will sponsor two simultaneous training events for UM Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) October 19, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, at Christ UMC, Lansdale 1020 S Valley Forge Rd, Lansdale, PA 19446.
One training will be for people wanting to be UMVIM Team participants. The other will be for people wanting to serve on Early Response Teams (ERT), whose mission is to provide skilled support to disaster survivors as soon as communities allow response teams into disaster-impacted areas.
