Appalachia Service Project – July 15-22, 2017
*Note new online registration requirement below.
Come to Appalachia this summer with Trinity to make homes warmer, safer, and drier. You’ll return home stronger, wiser, and closer to God. Appalachia Service Project provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation. When you arrive for your week of service, you’ll be housed in one of ASP’s several base camps — often a school or community center rented for the summer to put you closer to Appalachia’s remote communities. Your group will receive all the tools, construction materials and supervision they need to be productive, and plenty of opportunities for worship and reflection. But ASP is more than a building program — it’s a relationship ministry. You will spend a lot of time interacting with the family that you are assigned to serve. You’ll forge friendships that will impact you for the rest of your life.
Typical Schedule – (The general schedule will vary slightly from county to county depending on things such as when the hardware store opens or when the cooks arrive at work, etc.)
Cost: The cost of the trip (to you) is $325 per person. Any fundraising Credits that you have earned (Pumpkin Patch, etc) can be used towards the cost of this trip. We will also be holding our annual spaghetti dinner missions fundraiser on July 5th. Each participant is required to sell 5 tickets at $5 each. Funds raised from the sale of these tickets go towards the general trip cost. Any extra tickets you sell will help you pay for your individual fees. We encourage all to participate in this fundraiser, not only to help offset the cost but also to build a sense of teamwork and excitement about the trip. Adults who drive their own vehicle (must be able to fit 7 people) go for free.
Registration: Please turn in the registration form and a non refundable deposit of $125 by Sunday, April 9. Financial assistance is available to individuals if needed, please fill out a Mission Scholarship form and return no later than April 9.
