Group Week of Hope Wayne County, New York 2020

Located in a lush region with green rolling hills, Wayne County, New York is a remarkable community with a vibrant, established relationship with Week of Hope.

The historic Erie Canal passes through the nearby village of Newark, allowing boaters to travel along a scenic water route from Albany to Buffalo. The community incorporates a portion of the Canal Way Trail System, giving ample recreation for hikers, bikers, or individuals who just wish to enjoy wildlife and quiet trails.

Week of Hope teams will be serving in an area where they are needed and appreciated. Shifts in industry and agriculture have left the region in a long-standing period of economic adjustment. As is frequently the case, the very old and the very young often feel much of the burden—and the Week of Hope in Wayne County focuses on these populations.

Deep friendships are built through Jesus-centered service: A local family still has a picture on the wall of their children with campers from a Week of Hope camp four years ago. Teams are both anticipated for their arrival and remembered when they leave. If you come to Wayne County, you will leave knowing that you have been a blessing to specific people.

Our long-term host is a partnership of two churches—and between the two churches is a park that’s home to a weekly farmers market. Teams will experience the benefits of the established relationships in the community, including meals prepared by groups such as Rotary.
