Appalachia Service Project has been an active ministry at Jerusalem Lutheran for over 25 years.
The 2021 ASP Trip is Currently TBD!
Each year, we send a team of youth and adult members of our congregation on a week-long service project to an assigned rural, low income area along the Appalachia Trail.
ASP’s focus is on communities in West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina. Once there, we join other Christians to repair and build homes in high poverty regions.
Appalachia Service Project is a non-denominational Christian ministry, open to all people, that inspires hope and service through volunteer home repair in Central Appalachia. The JELC ASP Team is part of tens of thousands of volunteers from across the United States, who provide safer living conditions for those that can’t provide for themselves.
The 2020 ASP Theme: Complete, but not Finished — encourages us that we are each a work in progress. God isn’t finished with us yet, but God’s work will not be denied.
“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
