JJesus was a carpenter … as his hands and feet in the world today -
Ladies, pick up your hammers and pound! Signup for this year’s Women Build is off and running! It will be from May 2 through June 3 at 1923 Belmont Ave. in Elkhart.
Work day is from 8 AM to 2:30 PM. Our Mary Rasp - a passionate Habitat supporter - has offered to be a “Nail Captain” again this Spring. She’ll be helping coordinate FPC’s presence and participation.
A signup sheet will be in (or near) the Gathering Place, and builders among us are invited to sign up ASAP. We have a tentative scheduled work date of Saturday May 13 - all day - from 8 to 2:30.
Volunteers are encouraged to share the age-based offering (your age times $1.00) to be a builder. But please note - if that offering is not feasible for any reason - you can still participate - as a builder, or as a “Lunch Mom.” [Sorry - no soccer that day!] As such, you’d provide a morning snack and lunch (e.g., sandwiches, chips, fruit, string cheese and bottled water) for twenty builders.
People can partner in providing lunch. For folks who wish to strengthen their carpenter’s skills, Habitat sponsors a free clinic at Lowe’s on Reith Blvd. (just off U.S. 33 toward Goshen) on Saturday April 29, from 9:00 AM to Noon.
If you’ll be part of this great local outreach ministry, please sign up early, and let Mary Rasp know at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call at: 574-293-2472 (Home) or 574-361-8459 (Cell). Thank you!
