The New Life UMC Mission Group will be working with the Appalachia Service Project (ASP) in Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee from July 14-21. The upcoming trip and the work of ASP was recently highlighted in the local news. ASP works to bring thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families.

ASP’s vision is the eradication of substandard housing in Central Appalachia and the transformation of everyone who comes in contact with their ministry. Every year, they have the help of more than 16,000 volunteers. Last year, they were able to provide critical repairs for 493 families and construct 26 new homes.

The Mission Group at New Life UMC is excited for the opportunity to work with ASP. They will be holding several fundraisers to help them meet their goals, including a baked potato bar, brat fry, walking taco sale, and bread sale.
