Volunteers in Mission & Disaster Response
February Update

Volunteers in Mission

Arkansas Volunteers in Mission (VIM) and Disaster Response (DR) will host VIM and DR Coordinators from the South Central Jurisdiction for their Spring meeting. Coordinators will be introduced to the newly approved official VIM Work Site, ECHO Village in Eureka Springs. While in Arkansas the coordinators will worship together, will meet together for updates and business, will volunteer at the ECHO Village construction site and will learn about the ministries of ECHO – what they are, how they came to be and who they serve.

Disaster Response

Disaster Response WANTS YOU!

Local church involvement when disaster strikes is vital in assisting individuals and families affected. Disaster Response Ministry wants to help local churches understand how important they are as partners in this ministry.

We would love to come to talk to your group, class, or church and begin a partnership that will make a meaningful difference when disaster strikes.
Contact Janice at disaster@arumc.org to find out more.
