Serve in rural Appalachia

Mission | August 9, 2018

Ramps, roofs, painting, flooring – St. Paul will be heading to rural Appalachia from October 13-20 to help make homes warmer, safer, and drier.

The church’s years-long partnership with Appalachia Service Project (ASP) translates into one or two trips a year. In October, crews will work in Jonesville, Virginia.

In Appalachia, poverty is more than double the national average. Jobs are few and far between in these mountains. Homes are crumbling. Walls buckle. Roofs leak. Sagging floors pose hazards to all ages. The trip expense and travel distance are reasonable, at $325 for the week. St. Paul offerings underwrite some of the cost, making a meaningful experience possible for a wide range of people.

An informational meeting will be Sunday, Aug. 12, 10:30 a.m. in the Luther Loft. Seats fill quickly. Sign up online at Contact: Katy Warren,
