Presbytery of Western NC

Disaster Recovery Trip 

October 2-8, 2022

to help our Neighbors in Canton NC


The Canton, North Carolina area was devastated by flood waters on August 17, 2021.  The Presbytery is hosting a work trip to help our neighbors in need from October 2 – 8, 2022. 


The work is very similar to working on a house for Habitat for Humanity. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn new skills and help people in need. If you have never been on a mission trip, check out the Volunteer Guide to find out what is done. 


Cost for the week is $25, which includes food & shelter for the week. The team will stay at Canton Presbyterian Church. The maximum number of participants for week’s stay is 20. Opportunity for working 1-3 days and/or spending 1 or 2 nights is available for $10/night.


Not sure about staying all week? Come up for the day!  There is no up-front cost for this option, but donations for on-site materials are always welcome. You must register just like other participants. 

Vaccinations are no longer required for participants. If someone prefers to wear a mask while on the trip, please respect and support that person’s decision.

The deadline to submit registration forms is Monday, September 19, 2022.


Ready to register? Select Registration, print out and complete forms and mail them to the Presbytery office at 114 Silver Creek Rd, Morganton, NC 28655. Forms may also be emailed to and payment may be submitted through your online banking or by mail.


Still not sure and want more information about what goes on? Visit Canton NC May 2022 to see pictures from our last disaster recovery trip. 


Does your church have a group that would like to go up and work for a day or perhaps a week-end prior to October?  If so, contact Sabrina (Bree) Williams at 828-476-6009 or email
