The information/sign up meeting for Northminster’s Appalachian Service Project (ASP) 2019 mission trip will be Sunday, November 4th, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the sanctuary. The dates for the upcoming trip are June 15th to the 22nd.
The non-refundable, and required for all, sign-up fee is $50 and is payable at the meeting. You may also sign up after worship that morning during Fellowship Time. We will not be accepting registration fees before then. The total fee for the trip this year will be $350. Make checks payable to Northminster Presbyterian Church and put “ASP” and the name(s) of the volunteer(s) in the memo area.
Youth need to be 14 or have graduated from 8th grade at the time of the trip to be eligible to go. Adults considering volunteering for the trip are strongly encouraged to attend. Parents of potential youth volunteers are also welcome.
Topics to be covered at the meeting include:
- General information about the mission
- The rough schedule of events leading up to the trip, including fund raising
- Expectations and requirements for those volunteering to go
We anticipate quickly filling up many spots again this year. Waiting lists are a possibility, so please join us at this meeting as we start to plan Northminster’s 15th ASP Trip. You may let friends who want to go on this trip know about this meeting. All registrations and required sign-up fees collected after the meeting will be handled in the order they are received.
Also, as you consider signing up, please understand that preparing for this trip requires youth and adult participation in team building meetings and fundraising activities. We need to get to know each other before we can effectively help others. Non-excused inactivity could affect eligibility for trip inclusion.
