ASP (Appalachia Service Project) is our annual mission trip for high school and college students and adults. It’s a mission that serves the southern Appalachian mountain states (Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia. West Virginia) and aims to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for low-income families. It’s a life-changing week of service, fun, and fellowship.
UMC of Geneva has served with ASP since 1982. You can learn more about ASP at their website, www.asphome.org.
UMCG will be participating in ASP from June 15-22, 2024. Location TBD.
We meet prior to the trip to prepare for our trip.
