Teams will leave for home following church services.
Due to the way groups from various churches were organized into teams for Saturday and the way they will need to leave for home after Sunday services, the groups joining the Sunday services will not be identical to those which served there on Saturday. See the site assignment spreadsheets and the Special Site Notes for breakfast and worship instructions for specifics.
Thank you for your service in Appalachia in obedience to the Lord. Allow the Lord to deal with you as He brings to your awareness His love for you, the people you encounter, and your service to Him this weekend.
