High School Youth Group Service Trip
Come join us helping our neighbors!
This summer June 24 - 30, 2018, The Dover Church Youth Group will take it’s ministry of service to Western Maine. Building upon our past experience with Appalachian Service Project in West Virginia (pun intended), we will bring our home repair skills to Mission to the Eastward…”reaching the last house on the last road” (www.missionattheeastward.org).
This organization is part of the Presbyterian Church and has been serving Mainers since 1954. We will be specifically working with the North Parish Housing Ministry (northparishhousingministry.weebly.com), soon to be renamed the MATE Housing Ministry, which helps people in the Farmington area stay in their homes who without our help would not be able to. We will roof, build porches and ramps, paint and otherwise do the sorts of projects that we have done in years past for ASP.
If you are interested in finding out more about our service trip, please call the church at 508-785-0957, or email the co-leaders Max Olmstead or Sarah Hefter. You do not need to be a member of The Dover Church or even religious to join in this life enriching experience.
At the center of the Christian life is a commitment to justice in the service of the hungry, poor, sick and homeless. Each of us have our unique calling. Our Justice and Service Ministries are always evolving to match our gifts with the needs of our neighbors.
