A team from Santa Rosa First UMC to New Jersey for Hurricane Sandy Recovery work. http://www.fumcsantarosa.org/vim-trip-new-jersey-2013 THE TEAMS: When: There are two teams, one from Saturday, October 5 to Saturday, October 12 and another from Saturday, October 12 to Saturday, October 19. You can choose to be on both teams and stay the full two weeks. Who: Anyone over 18 years of age! If you know the difference between a hammer and a potato peeler, we can find work for you. You do not need to be a skilled tradesman – we will teach you what you need to know. Although there are some tasks in any reconstruction project that may be strenuous or require a specialized skill, the majority of the tasks can be accomplished by anyone. Our goal is to work as a team, utilizing all the various skills and gifts we bring. We hope you will join us for this exciting “hands-on” ministry! Do I need to be a Methodist? No, but you should be a person of faith, willing to work for the glory of God and able to subscribe to the slogan-”It’s not about me!” What will it cost? Airfare (round-trip) is from $365 up depending upon which airline and when you book. Team expenses are estimated at $230 a week. Lodging is $140 per person a week sharing a double room at a local motel. That adds up to $735 and up per person for 1 week or at least $1,045 for 2 weeks. Team expenses include 2 T-shirts and a share of the costs for food, rental cars, gasoline and other team supplies. A deposit of $100 per person is due by the June 18th meeting. For more information or to sign up, contact Diane Jackson, team leader.
