ASP Missions


"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Appalachia Service Project provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation -- bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. But ASP is more than just a building program. Yes, Appalachia's poorest families urgently need your help, but they can help change your life, too. Because when you change the lives of others, they have a way of changing you.

First UMC sponsors two ASP mission trips each year, a summer youth/adult program and a fall adult trip.  The Westborough ASP Youth Program is sponsored jointly by St. Luke's parish and First UMC.  Youth grades 9 and up do not need to be a member of these churches to join, but need a heart for service and a willingness to fully participate in the program.                    

Upcoming Events:

Join us for our Rummage Sale this Friday, October 2, 10am- 2pm and 6-8pm and Saturday, October 3rd from 9am-12noon.  This sale benefits our Adult Mission Trip to West Virginia in mid-October.
Appalachia Service Project (ASP) Information Night is THIS Sunday, Oct 4 at 6:30 pm in Webb Hall. This is your chance to find out everything that's involved in a trip to ASP. We encourage anyone who has an interest in (or is just curious about) serving God and others through home repair to attend. We welcome youth in 9th grade or above, and caring adults to lead and guide our team through service and construction. Parents who just want to know what their youth is getting involved with are invited as well. 143 youth and adults went on the summer ASP Youth Mission! Come and learn about what God is doing through the ASP Mission.
