There have been so many recent natural disasters, we've all been left asking, "What more can we do?"
Come find out.
The West Jackson Disaster Response Team will hold a meeting here at Parkway Hills UMC on Thursday, September 19th, at 6 pm
to help us learn more about working with a team.
A response team fills a specific need after a disaster to establish the caring presence of the church and to provide hope for the survivors. Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)/ United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) partnership, you can serve with a team (typically 10-16 persons) or as an individual. Volunteers need to be in relatively good health, complete an application form, be willing to pay his/her own way or help raise team funds, and agree to attend training sessions conducted by the team leader prior to departure. Anyone interested in working with a response team is encouraged to attend!
