Disaster Relief

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!
