United in Mission: Action Reachout Ministry by Youth (U.M. Army)

United in Mission: Action Reachout Ministry for Youth (UM ARMY): Every summer, young people from our congregation go to different locations in the northeast to do work for older people and disabled veterans who need help maintaining their homes.  Our youth do a variety of work, including painting, building handicapped ramps, yard work, and other light maintenance.  They stay at local churches, and invite those whom they are helping to share meals and fellowship.  The UM ARMY is a great introduction to Christian service, and teaches our youth how rewarding it can be to be the hands and feet of Christ!
