The Trinity Connection:
In the scenic Cumberland Mountains of Southeastern Kentucky, Red Bird Mission attempts to improve education opportunities through Red Bird Elementary and High School skills and providing a market for those who produce quality handcrafts in the mountain tradition.
For the past 24 years Trinity has been supporting this, the largest of the national United Methodist mission projects, located in Beverly, Kentucky. Over the years teams from Trinity have replaced roofs, added a room, built steps and done a lot of painting. It is a wonderful time of fellowship with others from Trinity. No construction skills are necessary.
