High School Summer Mission Trip

High School Summer Mission Trip

CEDAR GROVE, WV
Almost Heaven Workcamp


Cedar Grove was built as a booming coal-mining town. Many neighborhoods that were built in the early 

1900s are showing their age. Coal moves more slowly now, and residents are now becoming elderly, 

many with disabilities and black lung disease from years of mine work.

Many neighborhoods that were built in the early 1900s are showing their age, but the folks in Cedar 

Grove neighborhoods are tightly connected and take great pride in their families, their heritage, their 

school and each other. Your arrival in this community means decent housing instead of dilapidated 

trailers for these strong people and the knowledge that they are remembered and cared for. And you’ll 

get to do all that, in Jesus’ name, in Cedar Grove this summer.
