Carpenter's Project

Our congregation supports The Carpenter's Project with our prayers, monetary donations and volunteers. 

The Carpenter's Project is an intergenerational Christian mission program located in Ellwood Cit...y, PA.  With the purpose of assisting homeowners with minor repairs, approximately 200 volunteers (many are youth) from about 20 churches work for one week in July.  In addition to the uniqueness of many churches working together, there is no charge to the homeowners for the work done. In 11 years, this project has helped over 500 people in the communities of Ellwood City and Riverside School Districts.  Over 800 individual home repair projects have been completed.  Approximately 35 handicap ramps have been built.  Over 25 churches have been represented, and 12 churches are actively represented on worksites.
