Appalachia Mission Trip at Henderson

Appalachia Mission Trip
April 1-4, 2020
Henderson Settlement, Frakes, Kentucky

If you are looking for a way to get your whole family involved in mission work this spring, this is the project for you!

A group of individuals and families from FUMC-Ann Arbor will travel to the United Methodist Mission at Henderson Settlement in Appalachia to work on a variety of community projects. Some of the possible projects include residing a house or painting a porch, installing gutters, helping to re-roof, sorting books for the library, or sorting clothes and household items at the resale shop. Projects are catered towards all age groups so everyone can take part at their skill and comfort level.

We will carpool down together. Accommodations will be in Hope and Brick House.

February 16 at 10:45am – Attend an information session in the Aldersgate room
March 1 at 10:30am – Fundraising Pancake Breakfast
March 15 at 10:45am – Mandatory Information Session for Participants
April 1-4 – Trip to Henderson!

Cost: Approximately $150 per person, for room and board, plus $50 per family toward mission project costs. Team members will also participate in fundraisers for the remaining project costs, including the Pancake Breakfast on March 1!
