What if…? | By Jim Truitt
Check out the above photo. What if this was your neighborhood or one just down the road? Would there be someone willing to give you a hand? Or, someone to show compassion and caring; someone to give you hope?
Well, there is.
The PNW United Methodist Early Response Teams do just that. ERTs are there right after a disaster to do whatever is necessary to be a caring Christian presence; to make your home safe, sanitary and secure; and to prevent further damage.
Would you like to be part of this ministry? If so, come join us for the next Early Response Team training:
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Let me know you are interested and I’ll send you the necessary registration information. Send me an e-mail.
