Mission Trips

This year (October, 2016), we have a team going to Montana as a part of the Habitat for Humanity "Global Village" project.

In previous summers we've taken a trip to West Virginia to help repair homes of persons who are unable to undertake these projects themselves.

Armed with drills, hammers, and sleeping bags, our team was assigned to Clarksburg, WV, where we stayed in the First Presbyterian Church of Clarksburg. (In previous years we had gone to Huntington, WV and worked in the hollers of Lincoln County.) We performed modest repairs on four different homes, with tasks ranging from repairing a worn exterior staircase, re-hanging a fallen gutter, and painting several rooms of a home whose occupants had all been stricken by disabling health conditions.

The works projects are chosen for us by WVMAW, the West Virginia Ministry of Advocacy & Workcamps, an organization founded by the Presbytery of West Virginia in response to extensive flood damage suffered in the area about a decade ago.

In 2013, due to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, we focused our efforts on participating with Habitat for Humanity in repairing storm-damaged homes in Little Ferry, NJ.
