Each summer the Outreach Division sponsors a mission trip to locations that have suffered from natural disasters, or to areas where volunteering with special projects can help those who need it.
We have worked with Appalachian Service Project to build and improve housing for those in need at multiple sites in Appalachia over the past several years, forming relationships while constructing safe housing. This year’s mission trip will be June 25 – July 1 and will take us to Wise County, VA.
In 2013, 23 youth and adults traveled to Asheville, NC to work with The Timothy Project on an urban mountain mission. The focus of the week was ministry, building relationships and sharing gifts.
We have worked locally with Boaz and Ruth in the Highland Park area of Richmond, adding a two story addition one year, and renovating a home in 2009. In other years, we have sent teams to the Gulf coast to help with rebuilding following Hurricane Katrina.
We are committed to mission in what ever location “God calls us to to be the heart, voice, hands and feet of Jesus…”!
