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.
