Appalachia Service Project

St. Marks’ will once again send volunteers to serve with Appalachia Service Project (ASP) this summer. The ASP flower sale supports this mission trip. Please see the attached flower order form to place your order. We are excited to report that there are some new premium annuals and herbs for your garden. 

What is the Appalachia Service Project? 

The Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides life-changing, short-term Christian mission trip opportunities – bringing youth, adult, and college volunteers into rural Central Appalachia to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for families in need. ASP believes that safe, affordable, sanitary homes are a basic human right. With those guiding principles, youth and adults are sent to locations in Appalachia to help repair homes of those who cannot afford to do it themselves. 

This year, we will collaborate with the First United Methodist Church of Glen Ellyn, making a combined group. The trip dates are Saturday, June 18 – Saturday, June 25This trip is open to all students in eighth grade and up. We will need adult chaperones for the trip as well. If you are interested in this truly transformative experience, either as an adult or a youth, please contact John Zelman, the coordinator of the trip, at jzelman86@gmail.com.
