Meals for QuadW Summer Interns!

Our QuadW interns are back in Mobile and serving our community. We have 6 amazing young adults who are experiencing service in a new way. We need your help!  If you are interested in providing a meal for the interns on Wednesdays or Fridays, please call Katy Wrona at 724.889.6754. We need them beginning the week of June 26 through August 2.  We are asking for the meals to be delivered to Whistler UMC around 6:30 pm. We would love for you to stay and get to know the interns and learn how they are serving our community. Thank you!

Connecting Neighbors - Mobile District Workshop

Connecting Neighbors is a curriculum from UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. It is designed to inspire your congregation and community to be better able to minimize disaster-caused harm to people and property and to respond to our neighbors in helpful, cooperative and caring ways on behalf of the Church and in the spirit of Jesus Christ.

This workshop will take place on July 27th at Saraland UMC from 10am until 1pm.  It will provide 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.  Click here for more information or here to register.
