Work Mission Trips

Next trip - July 2018

Starting in the year 2001 members of the First United Methodist Church of Marshall, Illinois, made their first trip to Johnsonville, South Carolina, to participate in Salkehatchie Summer Service. Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering service ministry at selected sites in South Carolina and beyond. High school and college age youth, community leaders and persons of different cultures upgrade housing, motivate community cooperative efforts by helping persons to help themselves, and provide all participants with opportunities for personal growth and service. The Salkehatchie Summer Service is sponsored by the United Methodist Church of South Carolina.
