VIRTUAL WORSHIP RESOURCES:

APPALACHIA SERVICE PROJECT:  DONATIONS NEEDED!

JUNE 27 – JULY 4
LESLIE COUNTY, KY

This summer, Memorial UMC will have the opportunity to serve in the Appalachian Mountains once again!  Last year due to the pandemic, formative trip for our Youth and Adults, was cancelled, but fortunately, we believe that we can safely make the trip and once again serve the families of Appalachia!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Since we were unsure if we would be taking this trip until late in MAY of this year, we have not been able to participate in our normal fundraising activities.  Our Stock Sale, Car Wash and Lenten Lunch funds were not able to be earned and we hope to continue our track record of making ASP a “self-sustaining trip”, meaning we are able to raise enough funds so that no operating budget funds are used.  This goal will ride solely on the generosity of our congregation!

Just to give you a snap shot of the cost, we typically expect to raise around $500 per participant for the trip.  (This is the minimum for team fees, van rentals, and costs associated with supplies that is coordinated by ASP)  This year, we will be taking 21 people on our trip (3 teams of 7, or 6 adults and 15 youth).  That means we need to raise more than $10,500.  Any amount will help toward our goal of this year’s trip.  Simply drop a designated  gift (designated to “ASP”) into Sunday’s collection plate or drop it by the office.

With your generosity not only are you becoming an instrument of ministry through our youth and adults that are going on the trip, but you will also be offering a chance for our teenagers to better understand the position of being an agent of God, becoming the hands and feet of Christ on this earth!  I thank you for all that you have done for us in the past and for you generosity for the future!
