Habitat for Humanity
Our church has been involved in building and fundraising for Habitat for Humanity (HFH) house projects since 2006. Since 2012 we have teamed with the Good News Group, a collection of churches from a variety of denominations whose purpose is to build/renovate two houses a year in Washtenaw County. We fundraise to help lower loan amounts on the houses making them more affordable, and bring lunch to the workers; typically three times per year. HFH is a great way to “rub shoulders” with the prospective homeowners, others from the Good News Group, those from own congregation. Ultimately, it is an opportunity to give back, to help a family earn their first home, and to help unite our greater community.
God, Guys, and Grub
A Saturday morning opportunity to enjoy conversation and a home-cooked breakfast with other men who desire to serve God. There is a short devotional, but as a whole is focused on fellowship among the men of the church. It’s also a great chance for our youth and men to witness how adults interact, mature, and care about one another in a Godly way.
Sawzall Ministry is a means to help the elderly and those physically unable with small fix-it projects around their house. A focus through the years has been on life safety projects such as constructing barrier-free ramps, installing grab bars, and guard rails. On any given project there is also typically an opportunity as well for those with lesser construction skills and our youth to help out.
The ladies of our church host several events throughout the year, including a ladies’ Christmas dinner, a spring event, and ladies’ Bible study. We’d love to have you join us!
Faith Promise is a means to give over and above on faith to the missionaries doing the heavy lifting in bringing the word of God to those to those who have not yet heard the Good News. Our ministry includes a Faith Promise Weekend once per year where we coordinate missionary speakers, perform a service project in our community, and collect funds to give back towards missions. The service project and the weekend activities remind us that we all have a role as missionary’s in our own community.
