The Mission Committee would like to thank all the members of the congregation who “gave” to support the Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family Christmas Program. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide an unforgettable Christmas for a father, mother, and two young daughters.
During the week of June 4–10, 2017, Lincoln Park UMC will be taking a trip to Tarboro, North Carolina, to help families who are still recovering from hurricanes and flooding over the past several years. Chances are we will be helping to demolish and/or restore homes. Tasks could include: demolition, cleaning, laying tile and/or flooring, studding walls and installing insulation, dry walling, spackling, painting, etc.
Brian Hibshman, a member of Mohnton UMC, general contractor, and veteran of numerous work trips, has graciously agreed to lead our expedition.
I can personally attest to the blessing which comes through these kinds of mission trips to help others. While brief and sometimes challenging, they can be life transforming.
The cost of this one week trip will be between $250–$350. This includes everything: travel, lodging, food, and supplies for our project. I’m hoping to have around twelve volunteers. If you are interested, please contact me.
