Volunteers in Mission
Volunteers in Mission team members have been involved in missions since 1997 with the first trip to Tijuana, Mexico to paint the parsonage at Methodist Church.
Construction projects have involved numerous Methodist Churches throughout California, conducting a Bible school at an Indian Reservation, flood repair in Louisiana & Mississippi and campground repair at Lodestar and Monte Toyon. Nationally, sending members on a medical mission trip to Guatemala, a medical & construction trip to Africa and most recently an eyeglass clinic in Cambodia.
