Adult chaperones are also needed.
WhatWhen we're in the comfort of our homes reading this, others, not too far from us, are in their home wondering if their roof will hold through one more rainstorm, or when they will once again have a functioning bathroom. As a participant in the Appalachia Services Project, you can gain real-life skills, make life-long friends, and give someone a gift — no, a blessing!
Join us for the annual Appalachia Service Project (ASP) summer mission trip! LHUMC has been participating and serving the communities of Appalachia for over twenty years.
In Appalachia, we partner with the organization Appalachia Service Project to repair homes for those in need. The work varies from activities like digging a trench to prevent flooding or building a new roof for a dry and warm winter.
Adults and youth work together on this mission, which means that for every four youth that attend ASP, there are two adults. The maximum capacity for the trip is 42 participants total. The cost of the trip varies thanks to fundraising efforts and service to the LHUMC congregation.
When & WhereTeam meetings and preparations take place at the Church. The service project takes place in different parts of Appalacia.
See the Communities: Youth section of this Web site for this year's dates, forms, and registration information.
