What's Included


The Pottsville Open Team is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. The Pottsville Seventh-day Adventist congregation has been actively raising money to build a new church. This September, their prayers will be answered as Maranatha volunteers arrive to construct a 8,400 square foot church. Volunteers will help with the wood framing and siding as well as roofing, window installation, and rough electrical and plumbing work.
