Appalachia Mission Trip 2020
July 19-25, 2020
Our high school youth and leaders have spent a great deal of time praying about where to serve for our 2020 mission trip. We have spent the last few years helping and serving in areas ravaged by hurricanes and natural disaster and this year we looked to serve in a different way.
Elkview is near the busy capital of Charleston, but little growth in manufacturing, professional, or construction jobs has left this area with a struggling economy.
The dwindling coal industry has hurt folks in this area and a devastating flood in the summer of 2016 caused more damage than anyone expected. With much work still left in the process of rebuilding, Elkview is a great location for the hands and feet of Jesus to make a difference.
We hope you will spend some time getting to know us, our mission, and take part in the effort to help rebuild in Elkview by supporting us through our fundraising events through the year. You can check back here for updates on our progress and pictures from each of our events.

How Can I Help?
The youth have a variety of fundraisers planned between now and June of 2020. We plan to host an event every month, both within the church and community-wide. You can help by attending events, spreading the word to others, and always by lifting up our mission team in prayer.
