Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County will partner with our local faith community. Churches of all sizes and denominations will have the opportunity to build a home alongside other believers.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. As a Christian ministry, it is fitting that the church – Christ’s body in the world – is Habitat’s primary partner in this important work.
We are looking forward to building in Elkhart and invite churches, businesses, and individuals to join us as we build for two families, the Taylor and Riege families.
We are also thrilled to announce a special day that your congregation can be part of – the 2023 Faith Build will kick off on Saturday, November 4th, a day that churches from all over Elkhart County will come together to build and raise the walls for two deserving families’ homes. It’s an opportunity to emulate the unity and camaraderie of an Amish barn raising while making a lasting impact in our community.
Want to be a Faith Build Partner? Join us anytime during the construction of these two homes in the following ways:
Volunteer: Encourage members of your congregation to roll up their sleeves and join us on the construction site. No prior construction experience is necessary, as our skilled Habitat crew will provide guidance. It's an excellent team-building activity that fosters a sense of togetherness. (There will be additional volunteer opportunities beyond November 4th.)
Financial Support: Consider making a financial contribution to the Faith Build project. Your generous donations will help cover construction costs, purchase building materials, and provide essential support services for the families we serve. Every dollar you contribute brings us one step closer to making a family's dream of homeownership a reality.
Prepare a Meal: Provide a meal for the Faith Build volunteers and Habitat crew on November 4th or any of the Faith Build volunteer days.
Prayers and Blessings: We believe in the power of prayer and blessings. Please keep the Faith Build project and the families we serve in your prayers. Your spiritual support is invaluable.
Spread the Word: Help us raise awareness within your congregation by sharing our mission and the Faith Build project with your members. Encourage them to get involved and be a part of this life-changing experience.
Our Faith Build is scheduled to begin in November and go into the new year. If you are interested in participating, please contact email@example.com.
"We are God’s hands and feet, here to serve others and show them His love. The tangible experiences that Habitat provides allow you to engage those around you, live your faith, and offer a unique opportunity to love your neighbor." - Habitat for Humanity
