The Spirit of Christ builds Habitat Home #18

Join us this fall as we begin construction our 18th Christ Church Habitat Home! 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 Mike McGee at mgmcgee@windstream.net.

 

Needville Home is complete!

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.

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.

Home #16 Completed

Habitat for Humanity Team completes Christ Church’s 16th Habitat Home!

We rejoiced with Janay's Family for a dedication service (and cake!) as they took possession of their new home!  God and the team built a beautiful home together!

After volunteers had left,  Janay continued watering the grass and flower beds.  As she and Bob Ayers talked, she surveyed the yard of her new home, her smile spoke louder than any words could have.  She was so happy and is eager to make this house their home.
