UMVIM mission trip to Fort Yuma UMC

January 19, 2023 - January 22, 2023

Registration for UMVIM mission trip to Fort Yuma UMC

Pastor Manuel Jimenez, along with experienced missional consultants, have identified three realistic and effective tasks - making the Sanctuary usable, making the Fellowship Hall, kitchen, and restrooms usable, and making a large Sunday School room usable. (The campus has five buildings - work will be limited to two buildings.) There will be plenty of work for all skill and experience levels, from construction/drywall repairs to replacing doors and door locks and freeing up windows to installing pigeon spikes and replacing missing floor tiles. The kitchen and restroom/showers need attention. There will be plenty of general cleaning and some sorting and disposal. After all, a hundred years of use results in lots of needs. The dates are Thursday, January 19 - Sunday, January 22, 2023. Volunteers can participate on any or all of those dates. Overnight (air mattress) housing will be available at Trinity UMC - which has a long history of mission involvement. Some people may prefer to stay at a Yuma area hotel/motel.
  • Cell phone preferred
  • There will be plenty of work for all skill and experience levels, from construction/drywall repairs to replacing doors and door locks and freeing up windows to installing pigeon spikes and replacing missing floor tiles. The kitchen and restroom/showers need attention. There will be plenty of general cleaning and some sorting and disposing. After all, a hundred years of use results in lots of needs. The priorities identified will make two buildings, the sanctuary and the fellowship hall more useful: 1) Enclose with drywall the lower 2’ of the walls in the worship center, which the Fort Yuma congregation has removed to clean out skeletons and animal debris and detritis within those walls. (They sprayed the space with a mixture of detergent, peroxide, and Clorox.) 2) Repair or replace doors in the fellowship hall as needed, replacing lock sets. Free up windows that have been closed with paint. 3) Replace missing floor tiles in the fellowship hall. (Intact tiles will be left in place.) 4) Clean and repair restroom, shower, and kitchen fixtures as needed. 5) Install pigeon spikes above walkways. 6) Clean and paint a large Sunday School room adjacent to the fellowship hall. Clear out years of clutter.
  • Although not required, please list the types of experience you have and indicate professional certification or licensing you have in renovation.
  • The dates are Thursday, January 19 - Sunday, January 22, 2023. Volunteers can participate in any or all of those dates. Overnight (air mattress) housing will be available at Trinity UMC - which has a long history of mission involvement. Some people may prefer to stay at a Yuma area hotel/motel.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
