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.

Check back for 2022 details.

Cost per participant is $350; $150 deposit due bin the fall; $200 due usually in February. Each student is asked to raise $100 additional. Scholarships are available to cover part or all of the cost. If you need that support, please contact Julie Popplewell at Julie@genevaumc.org
