Appalachia Service Project (ASP) June 27 – July 4th, Perry County, Kentucky.

Do you want to be a difference maker? Are you eager to grow in God’s vision for transforming lives? Join us this summer as we grow in our understanding of how God works to “Complete” us.

ASP is a home repair ministry, founded by a Methodist Minister in 1969, with a mission to make homes in Central Appalachia warmer, safer and drier. You can go to ASPHome.org to find out more. It is open to youth ages 14 (13 if they have completed the 8th grade) and up and adults of any age.  This will be Haygood’s 40thconsecutive year and we are looking for 40 volunteers.  We will be serving in Perry County, Kentucky and ASP’s year round center in Chavies. This center has bunk beds, air conditioning and hot water! We will be with groups from other churches and more than likely from other states. During the week we will have six teams working on different homes that are in need of repair.  The homes and families are preselected by ASP through an application process.

Are you saying to yourself “I don’t have the skills necessary to do this kind of project”? Well, I can tell you this, for 39 years, we have always found plenty for all to do!  I would encourage you, just like I have in the past with our volunteers, to remember this “God doesn’t Call the Equipped, he Equips the Called”.

ASP’s 2020 Theme “Complete, but Not Finished” 

This Comes from Philippians 1:6 “I am sure that the One who began a good work in you will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.”

There is a sign-up sheet on the ASP Bulletin Board in the hallway near the kitchen.
