    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Future VIM Teams

    Home rebuilding mission trip seeks volunteers

    The Immanuel United Methodist Church is planning to support a team of skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled workers to help with home rebuilding projects from August 13 - 19, 2017 in the West Virginia area. Every person will be paired with someone who knows about the assigned task, and nobody will be asked to do anything they do not want to do or is unsafe. The nature of the project won???t be determined until close to the departure date.

    The Immanuel UMC will host an informational meeting at 7 p.m. on June 15 for those close enough to attend. For more information, please contact Mike Block at (315) 491-0497 or Forms must be submitted before July 17. Click here for more information about this mission trip.

    Zimbabwe July 2017

    The UNY 2017 UMVIM team to Zimbabwe is forming now! The dates are not completely set, but will be in July of 2017. We will be visiting Africa University as well as spending time at Mutambara Methodist Mission, doing light construction projects, participating in activities in the preschool and primary school, and working on sewing & cooking projects with the pregnant women who stay there for a month awaiting delivery of their babies. Lower age limit is 16 unless accompanied by a parent or grandparent; there is no upper age limit, but members do need to be in good health and mobile. Estimated cost is $3500, all inclusive.

    The initial team meeting will be Aug. 27, 10am, at the Port Byron UMC, and will be an introductory meeting - attendance does not commit you, but allows you to explore this opportunity to be in  mission. If you have questions, feel free to contact Sylvia Reimer, 315-778-5074 or

     concerns or questions you have when you reply.
