- What: Mission trip to do flood recovery in Northern Colorado
- When: June 1-5, 2014
- Where: Northern Colorado, most likely Lyons/Loveland area. Specific location to be determined by UMCOR
- Why: In September, 2013 a major flood in Northern Colorado destroyed many homes, roads, businesses, and communities.

The United Methodist Church is working with cities and agencies to provide volunteers for the clean-up and repair. We want to be part of that work and hope that you will join us in this mission.

Work: Primarily clean-up – mucking out mud and debris. Possibility of light construction work depending on skills needed.
Cost: $325 includes meals, lodging, showers.
Transportation: Each participant is responsible for transportation to the site. Carpooling is encouraged and we can help with those arrangements. We will carpool while on the site and those details will be worked out once we know where we will be working.
Registration deadline EXTENDED: Friday, May 16, 2014; $200 deposit due upon registration.
