Salem Mission Trip

 

The highlight of our mission year for team members is the annual workweek trip to Salem, Maine where we tackle tasks identified and assigned by the United Methodist Economic Ministry in that town. Our duties vary according to need, but include repairing roofs, porches, plumbing, and other household maintenance projects; assembling backpacks for students about to return to school, and mingling and socializing with the local residents. In exchange for whatever services we provide them, we are rewarded ten times over in our new friendships and closer bonding with our old friends, not to mention the pleasures of being in the beautiful rural landscape of interior Maine.
