Subject: COMMUNITY HOME REPAIR MINISTRY UPDATE
Date: Fri, 3 Feb 2012 15:44:24 -0600
Greetings, Friends in Christ! You are receiving this because you or someone from your church or group has participated or shown interest in the Community Home Repair Ministry. This ministry is based out of College United Methodist Church in Warrenton, but is open to anyone in our community to participate. Just to refresh your memory, this is a ministry open to any group in our area who has the heart to help others in need and wishes to help a family or individual make their dwelling safer or more livable. We receive referrals through Agape Ministry of Warren County who determines the need of the family or individual and refers them to our group. I receive the referrals at present and we send a couple of individuals to review the projects in advance to determine if it is something that can be done by volunteers with a knowledgeable leader(s). At present, we are not listing projects on the CUMC website and I will begin sending them to those on the above Distribution List. If you do not wish to be on the Distribution List, please let me know. Recent projects have included wheel chair ramps and a roof patching job, but they can vary greatly. With spring just around the corner, the number of referrals may increase. If you or someone from your group has an interest in reaching out to others in the name of Christ by helping in this ministry, we would love to have you participate!! We have also had some projects done by youth groups which can be a great way to involve them in reaching out to our community. We will provide specific information about any of the projects which come along and always let groups look at them before they make a decision to "adopt" a project. Groups adopting projects generally provide the materials and volunteers to complete the project, but occasionally we are able to assist with funding. Please contact me if you or someone in your group has questions or interest in this ministry! We have many good stories of how this ministry has touched the lives of others! Thanks for your time!
Dave Current, College United Methodist Church
