Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) Sunday

Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) Sunday

In The United Methodist Church, Volunteers in Mission Sunday is an annual conference-coordinated special Sundays with offering that provides opportunities for annual conference giving. Each conference determines the date of observance.

United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) is a grassroots movement within The United Methodist Church designed to provide an official channel for volunteer service. Christians, lay and clergy, offer their skills for service in their home country and around the world on short-term assignments at their own expense.

The UMVIM network offers guidance, organization and training for more than 125,000 volunteers each year who give of their time and talent to minister with the poor, build churches and other mission facilities, assist in disaster-recovery efforts, participate in community health programs and take part in leadership training events each year.

Churches are encouraged to provide displays, information resources, solicit individual or group testimonies, and/or develop other ways to celebrate the UMVIM movement in whatever fashion that best suits the local congregation; and to draw upon the available resources of the Conference UMVIM Committee, Coordinator, or team to help make the day memorable, one of “Christian Love in Action.”
