We are so excited to be working on the Mountain again this summer to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the people on the Southern Cumberland Plateau in Grundy County, TN. To achieve this goal we will be to opening up our hearts and using our hands to do God's work. We will once again be participating in major home repair. Our week long service is woven together with spritual-life programming starting with a morning Holy Time-Out, Midday Day Break, evening worship and activities.
We have made a decision to not drive straight through from TN to NJ. We will be stopping to rest Saturday July 1st then continuing on to Whippany Sunday July 2nd. PLEASE check your schedule and let me know this is ok with you! **We should be back to Whippany mid afternoon.**
We've approached the final countdown to Mountain T.O.P. 2023!!!!!! We will be LEAVING - WHEELS ROLLING at 5:00AM Saturday! Be there by 4:45AM for prayers and final loading!
