Building on Faith Introductory Meeting & Lunch
Time & Location
About the Event
Dear Church Leader-
I hope this message finds you well.
Habitat for Humanity projects have long been a way for people to live in their faith, and we are tremendously grateful for the volunteers, meals, donations, and prayers we receive from the faithful of Cheyenne.
You may already know that Habitat for Humanity was founded as a non-proselytizing Christian ministry to demonstrate God’s love. Its an essential value to our organization, and a key part of our mission and vision statements. Volunteers tell us how grateful they feel to live their faith in the service of building strength for families through homeownership. We cherish these comments because we see people growing in their faith while helping others gain stability in life so they may do the same.
We want to keep nurturing this rewarding work in Cheyenne. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about the Building on Faith project.
Building on faith is a partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Financial. The objective is to bring together 100 volunteers from Christian churches in our community for a day of service on September 7, 2019, to demonstrate what is possible when the faith community comes together to show love and support to neighbors in need.
Our event will focus on getting homes ready for winter; we’ll clean up yards, do some minor repair projects, weatherize doors and windows and install new smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We want this event to be a radically inclusive one, with volunteer opportunities for congregants of all abilities, and we plan to share the good news of this work far and wide.
We hope you’ll find this opportunity interesting, and invite you to join us for lunch at noon on Wednesday, July 17 to learn more. We’ll meet upstairs at the ReStore, 1721 Ames Ave.
Thank you for the work you do to make Cheyenne such a special place. We hope you’ll join us in this work. If you have any immediate questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
