Summer Mission Project

SMP 2022

Appalachia in Wise County, VA

June 18-24

After a two year COVID-related hiatus, we are excited to be planning SMP 2022 in partnership with Appalachia Service Project! Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is a Christian ministry, open to all people, that inspires hope and service through volunteer home repair and replacement in Central Appalachia. Since 1969, ASP has made homes warmer, safer, and drier for families and provided transformational service experiences for volunteers. Each year, more than 15,000 volunteers serve with ASP, providing critical repairs for more than 350 families.

SMP 2022 is open to anyone age 13 (must have completed 8th grade) and older.

COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all participants and all participants age 18 and over must complete a Criminal Background Check (if one hasn't been completed in the past 5 years for a previous trip).

For more details or if you have any questions, please contact Linda Bender or Pastor Layne Brubaker. As always, confidential financial assistance is available for anyone who needs it. Linda and Layne can provide specifics.
