Henderson Settlement, located in the Appalachian mountains in Kentucky, is a Methodist-sponsored organization that provides services in the Kentucky-Tennessee area to one of the poorest regions in the United States. Some services include home repair/construction, emergency family aid, mother-infant care, sewing classes, senior citizen’s programs, student tutoring, a food pantry, a thrift shop for clothing and home, and youth programs.
Mission teams from Plainfield United Methodist Church have been going to Henderson Settlement for many years, providing assistance where needed. A team is being formed to work the week of May 14 – 19, and you are invited to join the group for the entire week or for a portion of the week as your schedule allows. Work areas include, but are not limited to. Greenhouse activities, Thrift Store assistance, office assistance, home repair, painting, and quilting/sewing. In the evenings, you are free to play Euchre and Pickleball, visit with other volunteers, watch your favorite TV programs, listen to local bluegrass/country entertainers, or visit the ice cream shop located next to the Settlement. Meals and camaraderie, laughs, new friendships, and sharing God’s love are provided!
