Interfaith Habitat Offering and Build
Joining hands to help

Interfaith Habitat Offering and Build 2017

Joining hands to help

"I command you to be open-handed towards your brothers and towards the poor and needy in the land." Deuteronomy 15:11
 
"Whoever saves a life of one human being, it would be as if he save the life of all mankind." Quran, Chapter 5, Verse 32
 
"Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." James 2:17
 

Special Offering


Building on our long time partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Second will help build two homes with future Habitat homeowner families this fall. Our goal is to contribute $40,000 to be a matching grant to other congregations in our community. In 2016, a similar initiative brought together over 50 congregations and built two homes. This September, congregations, mosques, synagogues and temples will work together to offer a hand up to two families in our community. We need as much participation from the congregation as we can to ensure its success, including financial contributions.

Special Offering Envelopes are in the pews, or visit SecondChurch.org/e-giving to make a donation.

 
Build

Be a part of the Interfaith Build! Sign up today for the build in September.

Building on our long time partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Second Presbyterian will help build two homes alongside future Habitat homeowner families this fall. Our goal is to contribute $40,000 which will act as a matching grant to other congregations in our community. In 2016, a similar initiative was done that brought together over 50 congregations and built two homes. This September, congregations, mosques, synagogues and temples will work alongside each other to offer a hand up to two families in our community.

 
 
In addition to building the homes, we will have several events and opportunities to be involved in the Interfaith Build.
 
Building on the Interfaith Homes  Pick up a paint brush or hammer and join us. No construction experience or personal tools are necessary! In addition to building the homes, one of the goals of the build is to assemble diverse groups of people to build together. We have volunteer spots and need your help. 
 
Devotions  We hope to start each day with a devotional, prayer, meditation or inspirational message. This will be a great opportunity to share each of our unique perspectives and learn from one another. This will be done before the start of each build day and we would love for you to join us. 
 
Lunch  Are you more comfortable with a spatula or crock pot than a hammer? Sign up to bring a meal for a group of volunteers! This is a fun way that volunteers of all ages can participate. An important part of the building process will be lunch. Each day volunteers will pause and share a meal together.
