Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Faith Build

February 15, 2020 5:41 PM - 5:41 PM

For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."  Galatians 5:14

Friendship Lutheran Church of Joy will partner with Habitat & Thrivent to build a house in Champaign.  The construction will be April thru August on Saturdays only. Our church only needs to serve one or two Saturdays.  The shifts are 8-11:30 and 12-3:00 with lunch & snack provided.  There will be up to 20 local churches participating in this Faith Build.  Our church can volunteer in several ways:  construction, snack, lunch, financial, & PRAYER!  Sign up located in the narthex.

Dates to remember:

*Thurs., Apr. 2 7:30 am breakfast at Logic Everyday Community pre-build info meeting

*Sat., Apr. 4 9 am ceremonial groundbreaking of a 1500 sq. foot home

 

A few notes about Habitat:

*Christian homebuilding organization that builds simple, decent homes in partnership with people in need who are living in substandard condition.

*Works with community groups and volunteers to build homes and relies on donations of labor, materials, and land.

*Not a giveaway program.  In addition to a down payment & monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor or sweat equity into building their house & houses of others.

*The family owns the home just like any other mortgage holder.  Their monthly no-profit mortgage payments go back to Habitat and are part of a revolving fund to help build even more homes.
