Talk: Appalachia Service Project

July 6, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

With hammers and saws, volunteers work in Appalachia, then return to share their inspiring stories about making homes warmer, safer, and drier. For 40 years Princeton United Methodist Church has sent teen and adult volunteers to work for the Appalachia Service Project. This year’s 18-person team will report on their trip to Tennessee at a worship service on Sunday, July 10, at 10 a.m. All are welcome; the church is air-conditioned and a nursery is available.

The Appalachia Service Project is a Christian ministry, but it is open to those of any faith. It aims to inspire hope and service — instilling compassion for other people and a fresh appreciation for one’s place and purpose in the world. Preparation was an eight-month process that included learning Appalachian culture and the poverty many face, basic construction skills, and the meaning of service to others.
