West Virginia Workcamp: Each year, in June, CCC sends a group of youth and adults to the Cabell-Lincoln Workcamp in Huntington, WV for a week. We call this our “West Virginia Workcamp” mission trip and it’s done in partnership with All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Chelmsford and Mt. Vernon Congregational Church in Mt. Vernon, NH. At the workcamp, we meet up with other groups from all over the eastern U.S. and split into small work crews. Each crew goes to a home site and makes repairs that the homeowner cannot make themselves. The goal is to make each home “Warm, Safe and Dry.”

This year our trip will take place June 15 – 22. The trip is open to teens 14 years and older and adults. Youth younger than 14 can go if accompanied by a parent. Meetings this year will be March 3, April 7, May 5 and June 2 at 7 p.m. at 9 Worthen St. in Chelmsford. If you think you are interested, please attend the early meetings to get more details. We need to know who is going by May 1st since we need to send a deposit to the workcamp by that date.

If you’d like to help with this mission trip, but can’t go to West Virginia yourself, there are ways to contribute.  Workcampers will be selling workcamp shares after the service every Sunday through June 10. Just give a donation in any amount and you’ll get a “share” in the workcamp and also be signed up to get 2 postcards from workcampers. Other fundraisers will also be planned. All the money raised goes to defray the cost of the trip. If you have questions, please contact Bryan Norman:  brnorman@comcast.net (978) 250-8469.
