“Sharing the Love for Jesus Christ by Serving Others”
- Volunteer in Mission (VIM) Teams.
We provide overnight accommodations for out-of-state Volunteer in Mission (VIM) Teams throughout the United Methodist Great Plains Conference. This year, EHUMC was pleased to host 3 visiting VIM Teams during the month of July. These groups came to us from Wamego, KS, Wichita, KS and Urbandale, IA. Each group consisted of middle high youth and their sponsors. While in Omaha, they worked on several projects to help better the lives of those in need. This included spending time spreading mulch at Together, Inc., working in several Big Gardens in north and south Omaha, volunteering at the Open Door Mission and at the Lydia House.
- Middle High Mission Trip
Besides receiving teams to our church we also send our teams to do God’s work. In June, 13 Middle High youth and 6 adult chaperones departed from EHUMC to serve in Kansas City, Missouri, for the weekend. At HopeFaith Ministries in inner-city Kansas City, MO, they served the homeless a meal, helped unload and sort hygiene products and organized the warehouse. The next day, the team was at Avenue of Life in Kansas City, KS. where they helped serve food, cleaned up the garden and playground area, pulled and cleaned vegetables and cleaned the building.
