UMCOR Disaster Training Early Registration Ends Next Week!

August 22, 2008

Sure, you’ve been planning to register for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) disaster training in September – you just haven’t done it yet. Don’t delay! Your registrations are needed now to guarantee the minimum numbers needed to hold these two important training events. Early registration ends August 31.

Dates and locations are:
 
September 17-20 at Los Altos UMC, CA
September 22-24 at Reno First UMC, NV
 
Classes will prepare your church members to reach out with compassion and effectiveness when your community experiences disaster. Courses include Basic Disaster Overview (what happens in a disaster, and how we respond as a UM church), Early Response Teams, Ministry of Caring, Local Church Readiness, Caring for Children in Disaster, and Case Management for Long-term Recovery.
 
Please download the brochure/registration form (or use the hard copies mailed to your church office in early August). 
 
Don’t let your church miss this unique opportunity for Disaster Preparedness Training by UMCOR staff. Register someone from your church today!
