Give one weekend to make a difference in coal country

Have you been concerned about the plight of those living in coal country and wondered what you could do to make a concrete difference?  Join CUCC friends Rosemary and Bill Pate as they lead an adults-only long-weekend repairing a home in Jonesville, VA.  Rosemary and Bill are great team leaders who combine knowledge of construction with a sense of fun and deep caring for the homeowners and team members.  You will have a great experience.  They were team leaders on several of the ASP trips that CUCC youth have done with other congregations over the years.

If you are interested, contact them directly.

"Christ The King Lutheran Church is sending a group of volunteers to Jonesville, VA on October 19-22, 2017 to participate in the Appalachia Service Project. Volunteers will make homes "warmer, safer, drier" for families living in substandard housing. We will leave Cary on Thursday morning to travel to Jonesville, will work on Friday and Saturday, and drive back to Cary on Sunday.

If you would like to go on this trip, put this date on your calendar and notify us at rosemaryandbill@gmail.com or at 919-215-7426.  Rosemary and Bill Pate"
