Our church has been involved in mission trips on an annual basis for over 12 years.  They are always a very meaningful time for us to support others with our talents, whether it is painting, repairing, or building wheel chair ramps and decks.  Recently we have been working with the IN-KY Conference and doing disaster relief work in Kentucky.  Several years we have worked in the poorest parts of Kentucky in the Appalachia area.  Our most recent trip was June, 2011 to Olive Hill, KY, where nearly the whole town got flooded from an overflowing river. We worked with two other UCC Churches from Indiana and got a lot accomplished.  But most of all, we shared Christ’s love with the wonderful people of Olive Hill and ministered to them with our love and compassion.
