The Habitat for Humanity ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we must love and care for one another. Our love must not be words only— it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat for Humanity provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. We bring diverse groups of people together to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.

“We are a community of servants called by God’s reconciling grace to open doors of sanctuary, to create new avenues of ministry, to equip Christians for discipleship, to lead reconciling ministries.”

Change of 11am Worship Location 
The air conditioning on the main floor will take 6-8 weeks to replace.  Because of the heat, the 11am worship service will move temporarily to a much cooler Fellowship Hall.  The 11am order of worship will remain the same.  We are very sorry for this inconvenience.  It is hoped that the air conditioning will be installed by late July/early August.

Prepare for Sunday by Reading the Preaching Texts  
Check out the Preaching Text page on our website for listing of the scriptures to be used in sermons.
