U.M. ARMY :
Every summer, high school youth and adult volunteers provide home repairs fro those unable to either physically or financially do the work themselves. Any youth who has completed the 9th grade, prior to the work camp, may participate. Groups travel from one to five hours from home and meet other youth groups at a United Methodist church where they spend a week working in the community. Participating youth groups pool their resources of leadership, experience, tools, transportation and materials. Everyone is a volunteer, and everyone has an active role at U.M. ARMY!
BIG HOUSE is an acronym which stands for Believing in God and Helping Others Understand through Service Everywhere.

Work projects include: painting churches, doing landscaping, handrail repair, preparing meals, stocking food at a pantry and much, much more.
