Mission Opportunity! Help Rebuild Okanogan May 28-June 2, 2018

VIM-2

                                            2017 CUMC VIM TEAM

The Mission and Social Justice Team at Central UMC, Sedro-Woolley, is again organizing a Volunteer in Mission Team. The team will spend a week working on the Okanogan County Long Term Recovery efforts from May 28-June 2, 2018.

On July 14, 2014, the Carlton Complex Fire began and merged into one massive fire that spread rapidly through the Methow Valley in North Central Washington.

It consumed more than 256,108 acres and destroyed more than 350 homes. And in 2015, wildfires again swept through this area, bringing additional devastation.

The goal of the Okanogan County Long Term Recovery efforts is to help rebuild home destroyed by these fires. This is a multi-year effort supported by several denominations and other groups.

UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, has been a major donor to the effort, and UMVIM, the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission is helping provide volunteers for the rebuilding of these homes.

We, of the Sedro-Woolley United Methodist Church, will be sending its third UMVIM Team to Okanogan County to help. Would YOU like to be part of this team? It’s hard work, fun, an adventure, a life-long learning experience!

Contact Dan Gerhard, leader of our team, at revdanger@live.com (or call our church office at 360-856-6412) to learn more about how you can participate.
