EARLY RESPONSE TEAM (ERT)
The Christ Church Early Response Team (ERT), a part of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), is looking for volunteers to join our team. ERT members are trained to provide physical labor for urgent repairs and assistance, as well as emotional and spiritual support to disaster survivors as they recover and rebuild their lives. A team of three to eight members should be prepared to respond within 72 hours from an approved request for assistance, up to four times per year. Responses are limited to no more than a six-hour drive from Fairfax Station.
No special skills are required, just a desire to help your neighbors in their greatest time of need. Training will be provided. If you are interested in putting your faith into action as a team member or as a team lead, or just want to learn more, email Jim Stahlman here or call him at 571-308-2164.
