The Connecting Neighbors training, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., inspires congregations and communities to minimize disaster-caused harm to people and property and to respond to neighbors in helpful, cooperative and caring ways on behalf of the church and in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Information from this training comes from the knowledge and experience gleaned over many years by dedicated volunteers who have served their neighbors on behalf of the church.
Registration is $30 per person through March 22nd.
