Serving on Mission Trips

Laying tile in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (floods)
Two to three times a year members from Lynnewood join with members from other Tri-Valley UMC’s and travel to places affected by disasters to bring reconstructive skills on a UMC Volunteers-in-Mission (VIM) trip. The experiences have such a positive impact on the participants that most return year after year.

Among the many places we have served are Louisiana and Texas (hurricane), Iowa (flood), Missouri, Oklahoma, and Alabama (tornado), Haiti (earthquake), California (wildfires), and the UMCOR West Depot.
