U.M. ARMY continues to Re-imagine Mission and Ministry during the COVID-19 Pandemic!
This past summer we had incredible mission experiences in local communities that engaged youth, young adults, adult volunteers and families of all ages! A variety of Clients were served. Some were similar to our traditional U.M. ARMY experience. In these instances, homes were repaired, repainted, yard work was accomplished, and ramps were built... New opportunities were also discovered in local communities and U.M. ARMY participants connected with other non-profits, churches, and individuals in creative ways! In the end, people felt like they had "been to U.M. ARMY!"
During the Fall of 2020 the "ALL IN" Story continues! We would LOVE for you to join us!
