faith Build wall raising has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 12, 2019. everyone is invited and encouraged to join in this exciting event.
Habitat for Humanity has a new building project involving local churches, and this time it is called a Faith Build which is a name change from the Apostle Build earlier this year. Thrivent is supporting this project by providing half the funding for the house, and Hope has committed to providing $2000, 3 work days, and 3 lunches as well as prayer support. The Faith Build house will be at 2209 Cedarwood Dr., very close to the Apostle Build home last year. It’s a great opportunity to meet the future homeowner and also to help afterward building more walls. Hope is on the schedule for work days on Friday, January 25; Saturday, March 9; and Saturday, April 13. We will need 3-4 workers on those days. The construction supervisor advised the Faith Build partners that when there are more than 10 to 12 workers at the site, it is hard to find enough work for everyone, depending on the tasks for the day. However, on Thursdays and Fridays workers are always welcome and don’t need to be on the schedule since there is usually not the number of volunteers and groups that are free to work on Saturdays. The contractors will be working on the house in February, but other than that you are welcome to help any Thursday or Friday. :) Our scheduled lunch days are Friday, March 22; Saturday, April 6; and Saturday, May 25. Once again, we will be serving lunches for other worksites in the Cedarwood neighborhood as we did previously. We look forward to this outreach challenge to serve our Melbourne community and our Lord by supporting the Habitat Faith Build. Watch for further news and sign up sheets. Please consider being a part of this exciting endeavor—you won’t be sorry! Contact Nancy Roberts for information.
