Connecting Neighbors

Connecting Neighbors is a curriculum developed by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to help churches be better prepared for a disaster and also help churches respond more effectively once a disaster has happened. 

Connecting Neighbors Workshops are planned for all our districts in 2019. Send your pastor, trustees chairperson, lay leader, and other key decision makers in your church. This workshop provides the framework for developing a disaster response preparedness and response plan. After the workshop, you will take the information learned back to your church to develop the full plan for your congregation.

.3 CEU units are available for participants.

Each workshop begins at 10 AM and will conclude after 1pm. It includes a working lunch for $10 with advance registration. Click here to register for any of the sessions. Click on any date below for more details.
