We are gearing up for a special build in 2021 – won’t you join us?
St. John’s Lutheran Church in Northfield is providing a lead gift of $40,000 to move us forward to doing our first Faith Build in 2021.
We want YOUR congregation to be involved in our Faith Build, too! We’re looking for faith communities to FUND and BUILD a home in Northfield in 2021. The first step for your congregation is to become a Faith Builder Congregation (see below).
Become a Faith Builder Congregation
- Designate 3 people who will be advocates for Habitat within your faith community
- Commit to your church volunteering with Habitat in some way throughout the year
- Commit to a financial contribution annually.
