July 16 – 23, 2016
This was our 39th year participating in ASP. Our trip was in Johnson County, Tennessee this year. We took a team of 14 people this year (3 work teams). Our work included a variety of jobs, including installation of insulation and underpinning, rebuilding a bathroom, and installing a laminate floor. Two other church groups (from Pennsylvania and Alabama) joined us at our ASP center.
We enjoyed meeting and visiting with the families we supported, and will miss them. Each of us experienced “God moments” during the trip, with those in the community. Our youth will be forever changed by their experiences. We thank our church community for helping us to make this mission a success, and look forward to planning a big 40-year anniversary trip next year!
July 11 – July 18, 2015
This was our 38th year participating in ASP. Our trip was in Martin County, Kentucky this year. ASP is our largest national youth service project. We took a team of 18 people to Martin County, KY this year (3 work teams). Our work included a variety of jobs. We were joined by 3 other church groups at the ASP center, and the ASP staff were great to work with. We were also blessed to have the Chicago church group work with us at one work site.
Our youth returned talking of hard work, bad weather, lots of fun, and good family experiences. We had minimal injuries and enjoyed getting to know the families that we were sent to help. On Sunday, July 19th, we shared (with our congregation) how the hope and faith of these families touched both our youth and their leaders.

Perry County Kentucky
“Not by force, nor by strength, but by my Spirit.”
This year, our 32nd year of ASP, we sent our high school students and their adult advisors to Perry County, Kentucky. Our youth left Chardon on Saturday, June 2oth, and returned on June 27th. They told their stories Sunday, June 28th at each service (8:15 am, 9:30 am, and 10:45 am). They talked of hard work, with minimal injuries. They talked of families that they were sent to help. Even in an area of recent flooding, the hope and faith of these families touched both our youth and their advisors. Please review the ASP 2009 Photo Album.
We thank those who helped pay their way, and particularly thank those who went on the trip. And we continue to pray for the families that they helped.
Thiry-one years later, we again sent our high school students and their adult advisors out to “get ‘er done”. Our youth left Chardon on Saturday, June 21st, and returned on June 28th. They told their stories Sunday, June 29th at each service (8:15 am, 9:30 am, and 10:45 am). They told it all; the good, the bad and the ugly. And, about the love, the maturing and the faith. Please review the ASP 2008 Photo Album.
We thank those who invested in ASP by buying one or more ‘bricks’ and those who supported the spaghetti dinner and auction.
