The VIM Food Coordination team will be seeking donations for the upcoming VIM in January.

CUMC Kitchen team will serve drinks, including coffee, tea and juice, snacks and lunches.

We are in the process of asking other churches and organizations to host the VIM team’s dinner meals.

CHURCH AND VOLUNTEERS IN MISSION
We have developed a CUMC Volunteers In Missions (VIM) Coordinating Team .
VIM is a ministry of the United Methodist Connection. We have made an announcement calling on VIM trained individuals to help us with  construction and painting of our new church. The word will travel throughout our United Methodist Connection and trained volunteers will begin to respond to our need.
The function of the CUMC VIM Coordinating  team is to understand the timeline of our current church building project and coordinate efforts of hospitality and service for VIM.   We desire to be good to them, as they serve us.  We intend to open our homes for them to sleep, provide nutritious meals, beverages and snacks and show ourselves friendly over this five week period.  We expect to serve approximately 30 volunteers per day.  Their services will save us approximately $50,000. in building fees. 
 
The CUMC VIM Coordinating team includes the following people:
Gary Bunch, CUMC Mission Coordinator
Bill Toner, Construction Liaison
Deb Boyer, Housing Coordinator
Kathy Bunch, Food Coordinator
Vicki Ewing and Jaime Carpenter,  Communications 
You will hear more from the CUMC VIM Coordinating Team in the coming weeks.  There will be plenty of opportunities to serve. There is something that each of us can do to make this a beautiful and successful experience in giving and hospitality.
