    Global Migration Sunday

    December 3, 2017

    This is the first Sunday of the season of Advent, a time when we remember the coming birth of the Christ Child who was himself a migrant.

    From Asia through Europe and Africa to the Americas, the plight of the over 65 million men, women and children forced to leave their homes and migrate to places unknown calls all Christians to remember what God requires of us.

    Wars, natural disasters, persecution, economic hardships, and growing violence around the world are the major root causes of the unprecedented global migration we see today with grave concern. As if these deadly forces were not enough, migrants also face myriad problems as they migrate including hazardous travel, cultural barriers and the physical and emotional costs of arriving in strange lands where they are not always welcome and often persecuted.

    For most of these migrants, the decision to flee their homeland comes as a last resort effort to live. We are reminded of Joseph and Mary as they sought to save their lives and especially the life of the Christ Child by fleeing to Africa to escape the wrath of King Herod who felt threatened by the birth of Jesus and ordered the massacre of the children (Matthew 2:13-14).

    United Methodist Student Day (Special Offering)

    November 26, 2017

    Across the country, the people of The United Methodist Church are serving the people God loves in Jesus’ name. We’re doing it at home, but so often we’d like to do more.

    We want to serve those in other places who are suffering.
    We want to offer spiritual words of hope and life.
    And we want to be well-equipped to do both!

    But the reality for most of us is that our responsibilities—home, family, work—don’t allow us to engage with every need we’d like to meet.

    Right now there are UMC young people—who might not have had the resources to attend a school of their choice, or, for some, any school at all—who’ve been sent by you into the world God loves because of your giving to United Methodist Student Day. When you give generously you are support these students as they prepare for a life that unites faith with knowledge.

    What no one person or congregation can do alone, we’re doing together.

    UMCOR’s Early Response Team (ERT) training equips individuals to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disaster. When disaster strikes, Early Response Teams (ERTs) fill a specific need to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage. The work provides a caring Christian presence in times of disaster. The ERT badge is issued by UMCOR to applicants over the age of 18 after successful completion of an ERT course and background check. Badges are valid for 3 years.

    • The Early Response Team course is facilitated by Brian Greenwald facilities this 8-hour course.

    Trained by UMCOR, Brian is an experienced ERT responder. Questions should be directed to Brian at bngreenwald@windstream.net

    • ERT training cost of $25.00 includes the ERT manual, background check, supplies, and badge.

    Payment is by check written to "Clifton Springs UMC" with "ERT" written on the memo line. Bring check to the training.

    Training is potentially cancelled if less than 12 registrants by November 11.
