Upcoming Mission Opportunites

Philippi Work Mission 2023

 

You are invited to participate in the 2023 Philippi Work Mission June 18-23.  We will be joining with Holiday Park UMC again this year.  Adults and youth going into ninth grade are encouraged to attend.

 

The work mission is coordinated through Heart and Hand House for Barbour County, WV.  They coordinate work projects for those who are unable to provide needed repairs or construction physically or financially themselves. 

 

The projects include work such as upgrading failing infrastructure and adding livable space including decks attached to mobile homes.  Ramps, porches, and porch roofs have been added and roofs, floors, ceilings and plumbing have been replaced. All tools are provided, and you can learn on the job and just need to be willing.

 

The kitchen work includes preparing breakfast and dinner at CRIM UMC plus coordinating making lunches. Lodging is in the dorms at Alderson Broadus University and is the only cost to the individual.  Scholarships are available as needed.

 

If you are unable to go on the trip, you can support the mission with contributions for project materials and food. Everyone can participate in praying that we are led in building relationships with those we meet, working safely and meeting the needs of those in need. 

 

Contact the church office or Pastor Jack ASAP for more information on how you can support this mission!
