Volunteers in Mission (VIM) at Green Mountain United Methodist Church is a group of dedicated people who, when a need arises, are ready to answer God’s call to help wherever it may be. VIM participates in short-term mission service locally, nationally and internationally, and consists of lay and clergy, young and old. Most VIM trips are coordinated with the United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR), the humanitarian relief and development arm of the UMC.
VIM has done an array of work to assist with disaster relief; including work as complex as mucking out homes, demolition work and drywall installation to more simple tasks such as painting, yard clean up and assembling disaster kits. Past trips have included working on disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires in places such as New Orleans LA, Staten Island NY, Hope City CA, and Greenville KS, and assisting on a more local scale with Habitat For Humanity and Beaver Creek Youth Camp in South Fork CO. VIM has also assembled disaster kits at the UMCOR depot in Salt Lake City, UT.
Green Mountain UMC and the Mountain Sky Conference are part of the Western Jurisdiction. More information about the jurisdiction’s VIM and opportunities to serve can be found at https://umvimwj.com.
