Appalachia Service Project Mission

Click the button below if you're interested in going on our 2016 ASP mission trip. Filling out the form doesn't register you for the trip but allows you to get more information about it.

The Appalachia Mountain region stretching from Tennessee to West Virginia ranks as our nation’s highest area of need. 1-in-4 people (elderly, children and adults) live below the poverty line and in homes that are substandard, some lacking protection from the winter cold, and even kitchens, bathrooms, running water, or plumbing. 

For 29 years, Decatur First United Methodist has sent its youth and adults into the mountains of Appalachia to help make the home of those in need warmer, safer and dryer. In 2016, we will send another group to support this wonderful mission. After just a few days of repairing homes, their hands will be tougher, arms stronger, and their hearts filled with the warmth of a deeper relationship with God. 

Our trip dates for next summer are June 26- July 2, 2016
