Appalachia; Salyersville, KY
The Summer 2011 mission trip was to the South eastern Sandy Valley Region of Kentucky. In Salyersville, the group of 5 worked underneath a home on the side of a mountain down in a hollar of KY. They replaced rotted floor joists and beams and laid down sturdy flooring for the lady who lives in the home. She no longer has to tread the floors of her home in fear. She can walk confidently in her home.

Ongoing Fundraiser: Ink Cartridges
Remember, we are still collecting ink cartridges for recycling. This helps both the environment and the treasury of the Youth Groups. Everyone, adults too, bring your ink cartridges (sorry, not laser cartridges yet) to the church and we'll get them where they need to go.
Food Bank Collections
Reminder, groceries are collected year-round for distribution to church neighbors at Brightwood, Fletcher Place, Vida Nueva, and other urban missions.
Ongoing Youth Mission
15 bags of food were delivered to East 10th Street UMC Food Bank for their needy neighbors. Several families came directly to Epworth for food bags. The Epworth Help Fund provides food to an average of 10 persons a month who come to directly to Epworth seeking food assistance. (Last year we provided 248 grocery bags of food to our inner-city pantries.)
