Join us as we begin construction our 18th Christ Church Habitat Home!  In the Spring of 2022, please stop by our Habitat for Humanity table in the Gathering Hall or FLC Lobby to sign up. No experience necessary! Whether you already know construction, are willing to learn, want to serve lunch, help greet/sign in or would just like to deliver ice and water to our thirsty workers, we need everyone’s hands to complete this mission. You may also sign up by emailing Volunteer Coordinator Mike McGee at mgmcgee@windstream.net.

Needville Home Completion (#17)

A small, but valiant team of Habitat Supervisors worked during the hot summer hours to give Gloria and her two foster sons a place to call home. View the photos here.

General Information about a Habitat Home

Christ Church works in conjunction with Fort Bend Habitat to build a Habitat for Humanity home for a qualified family.

  • Habitat’s philosophy is “hands up, not a hand out.”
  • Volunteers from Christ Church work alongside the recipient of the home.
  • The family must perform 300 “sweat equity” hours.
  • If you know of a family that may qualify, encourage them to apply by contacting Habitat at 281.403.0708 or completing the Pre-Application.
