Saint James Mission Trips
Reaching out to others in need
Transform Jersey Shore Area
For the past three years, volunteers from Saint James have traveled northwest to the borough of Jersey Shore, in Lycoming County. Once an industrial boom-town, the area has endured economic difficulties made worse by massive industrial accidents and flooding from Hurricane Agnes in 1972.
Transform Jersey Shore Area (TJSA) is a hometown mission trip created by Trinity Episcopal Church in Jersey Shore, PA. This outreach program is bolstered by an ecumenical body of believers from area churches and organizations whose goal is to show and share the love of Christ—one community, one neighborhood, one life at a time. By forming community partnerships and relationships with their neighbors, they are working together to repair and renew homes and transform their town.
Saint James Plays a Role in this Endeavor
For the past three years, volunteers from Saint James have traveled to Jersey Shore and contributed their time, skills, gifts and talents to neighborhoods in need.
In 2017, jobs included scraping and painting, installing insulation and siding, replacing a hot water heater and a kitchen faucet, installing two sets of steps and a deck, and repairing a shingle roof.
