Connecting Neighbors Disaster Planning coming to Elliston Zion

Posted on Tue, May 17, 2016

Join us for this important training!

Unfortunately, this program has been cancelled.  We will reschedule soon!   Thank You!


Dear Friends,

Elliston Zion UMC in cooperation with the West Ohio Conference, is sponsoring a one day training entitled CONNECTING NEIGHBORS.  We invite you to join us in this important ministry.

West Ohio Conference has UM Committee on Relief trained leaders to help local churches develop a disaster ministry. Churches can better provide a caring Christian response to local disasters if they have prepared their church families and facility before disaster occurs. Connecting Neighbors addresses the faith community's responsibility in disaster readiness and response and suggests tools to meet individual and community needs.

This one day training includes:

  • A Disaster Ministry overview
  • Ready Congregants- preparing individuals and families to be disaster free.
  • Ready Churches- emphasizing the importance of protecting church property and its people in the wake of a disaster.
  • Ready Response- encouraging churches to explore their capacity for various response ministries.

This one-day, all day training session will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2016 beginning at 9:00 am.

The doors will open for registration and continental breakfast at 8:00 am.  Lunch will be available at Elliston Zion for a free will offering.  There are also a limited number of restaurants nearby.

There is no cost to this training. 

If your church would like to participate in this ministry, please go the the link "Connecting Neighbors" above and fill out your contact information.  We will send you a confirmation.  Thank You!
