Disaster Recovery

Mission trips are planned in response to disasters, but it’s always much more than a trip. Participants are on a mission— a mission to share God’s love through presence, prayers, and work. As a Volunteer in Mission (VIM) people who serve make a difference in the lives of others while finding that their own lives are changed forever. Often the mission focuses on home repair, but construction skills are not needed. A willingness to be the presence of Christ is all that is required. Each mission trip includes time for both action and reflection.

Disaster recovery teams from Powell have responded to flooding in West Virginia and hurricanes in New Jersey and Louisiana.

 
In the last few years, teams from Powell UMC went to support the recovery work in West Virginia. That work came to an end and we thank all who are able to support this mission. Below is the video celebrating this mission.
