Appalachia Service Project

Every summer for a decade, Arlington Temple sends teams of adults and youth to Appalachia to spend a week repairing and fixing up homes in Appalachia through the Appalachia Service Project. If you want to be transformed, and to experience the beauty of Appalachia, come and serve with us at ASP. Over the past 10+ years we've been all over Appalachia, built wheelchair ramps and porches, replaced bathroom shower stalls and leaky kitchen sinks, installed new flooring, redone insulation and drywall, constructed skirts for mobile homes, and a lot of other projects. Of course, the most important part is the relationships we develop as we recognize that God works through us but also meets us wherever we go.

If you are age 14 or older, then join us July 18-25, 2015, in the mountains of North Carolina to serve folks there by making their homes safer, warmer, and drier. No construction skills are required (but we love having people join us with special talents such as carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work!). We welcome youth and adults from other churches who want to serve but need to band with others to get to “critical mass.” If you are interested, please contact Pat Booher at PRBooher@aol.com or 703-447-1962 for more information. You can also support this ministry by making a donation to ATUMC and marking “ASP” on the notation line.
