For the four years prior to 2007, the Cumberland County Parish had sent groups of youth and adults on a youth mission trip to Service Over Self (SOS) in Memphis, Tennessee. These groups repaired homes for residents in some of the poorest neighborhoods in Memphis. Youth roofed, painted, rebuilt bathrooms and kitchens, as well as conducting other repairs.

For each year from 2007 through 2020 our youth and adults put their talents and resources to work right here at home in Cumberland County Kentucky.

With God's help, we accomplished all the tasks that we planned and had a wonderful worship experience along the way. We received more blessing than we gave and expect to continue our local efforts in 2021.

Come be part of the ER team in 2021!
