Mon County Habitat for Humanity

Building On Faith Week

Building on Faith is Habitat for Humanity’s annual celebration on faith partnerships during which Habitat groups around the world are encouraged to host building projects and celebrations with their congregational partners. Another emphasis of Building on Faith is to encourage congregations to pray for and to become advocates for those in need of shelter. Mon County Habitat for Humanity will celebrate 2015 Building on Faith on Saturday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 8 through Saturday, September 12.

We invite volunteers to come and build with us during one of two shifts: 12:00-4 and 4-8pm. The shifts on Saturdays are from 8-noon and 12:30-4. We also invite church members who may not be interested or able to help with construction, to get involved through preparing and serving dinner to the work groups.

Please contact Tracy Thewlis, chair of the Faith Relations Committee, at tracythewlis@hotmail.com to volunteer or for more information.
