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 accross the United States, who provide safer living conditions for those that can’t provide for themselves.
Let’s get this New Year kicked off the right way, with the 2018 ASP Theme! – Isaiah 6:8 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’” We hope you will join us in learning more of what it means to be “Called to Action”
