Red Bird Mission Team

Annual Outreach to Beverly, Kentucky

The Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky, serves the physical, educational and spiritual needs of Appalachia. There are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to participate. If you’d like to be on the October 2024 mission team, contact Gene Smith.

Some examples of work projects are window replacement, small room additions, painting, building porches or ramps, and grounds keeping. Other light-duty work is available such as office work, craft and community store helpers, and recycling. A single fee covers the cost of each person’s lodging, meals, and materials used.

In addition to providing mission opportunities, Red Bird Mission strives to provide an atmosphere where participants grow spiritually and gain a personal understanding of mission. Evenings are spent in Christian fellowship and learning about the diverse ministries of Red Bird Mission, which is part of the United Methodist Church.

Annual Scrap Metal Drive

The Red Bird Mission Team thanks everyone for supporting the scrap metal drive every September at the Brighton Campus. Thousands of dollars are raised and hundreds of pounds of scrap metal are saved from the landfill. Save your metallic household items for this fall’s fundraiser! See list
By contributing your unwanted metallic items in this way, you are reducing the amount of waste into land fills and contributing to mission work — all money raised from the salvaged metal is for Red Bird Mission. Volunteers separate the metal from donated items to increase the salvaged value.
Fun fact…….when tearing apart a dryer. We get nine feet of small wire, the cord, the motor, a circuit board, the outside casing, which gets flattened, and usually a metal drum.
