West Lawn UMC

Christian Love in Action

July 14, 2018, 8:30AM – 3:30PM, at West Lawn UMC, 15 Woodside Ave, West Lawn, PA 19609www.westlawnumc.com. Leading the training will be:
  • The Rev. Tom Lank (Deacon), North Eastern Jurisdiction VIM Coordinator,
  • Ben Botti, one of our past EPA VIM Coordinators and the new VIM Coordinator, Russell Atkinson.
Great passion and interest have been expressed throughout our Conference for the continuing struggles of the people of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria last year. The Methodist Church of Puerto Rico has developed a sound disaster response plan which our Conference has been asked to support.
Though the training will be appropriate for all interested in learning how to lead a team, emphasis will be put on preparing to respond to the Puerto Rico recovery. The most current news about the conditions in Puerto Rico will be reported to participants by Rev. Nicholas Camacho, our Conference Special VIM Coordinator for Puerto Rico Response.
Cost of $45/person will include the book Mission Journey, the most up-to-date production of the VIM Team Leader Toolkit, breakfast of a light “continental” type, and lunch.
For further information contact: Russell J. Atkinson, EPA VIM Coordinator (610)675-7187, or ratkinson@epaumc.org
