SNEEDVILLE MISSION TRIP
Each summer, a mission team of youth and adults travel to Sneedville, TN to serve the community through construction projects, backyard bible school, and nursing home and ladies' group ministries. Throughout the week the Sneedville mission team centers on God by building relationships with each other and the community residents.

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is a ministry of The United Methodist Church dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States. They provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own. UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify. Centreville UMC often utilizes this organization to channel our support for relief around the world.
One way we provide assistance in response to global disasters is to provide cleaning kits (also known as flood buckets) to UMCOR. Visit www.umcmission.org/umcor-cleaning-kit/ to learn more.
For questions, contact: Phil Mohr email@example.com
Our Early Response Team is a specially-trained team of volunteers who respond to disasters such as floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes. These teams are not a first response group of emergency workers, and they are not a recovery or rebuild team. They are there to clear debris and stabilize homes, and to provide caring support and a Christian presence in the wake of a disaster.
A typical project includes removing debris, mucking out houses, and tarping roofs. A key phrase to describe the work of an ERT team is to make a situation “safe, sanitary, and secure.”
Volunteers must receive the required ERT training. Deployment is based on need and availability.

Global Ministries We Support
Helping Haitian Angels is a Christian organization caring for orphaned and abandoned children in Northern Haiti by raising them to become healthy, happy, Christian members of their communities who will have the tools to positively impact future generations.
...whoever is kind to the needy honors God - Proverbs 14:31
CUMC’s first HHA Mission Team served in Cap Haitian, Haiti at the Kay Anj (Angel House) orphanage in October 2013. Centreville UMC has been supporting a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program in recent years at Lekol Harvey school at Kay Anj Village. We also sponsor a child through HHA. His name is Joanel, and his picture is included here. Individual child sponsorships are also available.
In addition, each week, an “Angel of the Week” is highlighted in the E-news for special prayers. Each November we also offer an alternative gift market in support of HHA.
