Interfaith Build

Every year we dedicate a percentage of our Christmas Eve offering to a support a local non-profit. This year, the organization we supported is Habitat for Humanity. Their mission is to build safe, affordable housing with people in the United States and around the world, and that comes from a desire to put God's love into action.

In 2020, we will work alongside local Christian churches, Muslim Mosques, and Jewish Synagogues to build a home for a family with Habitat for Humanity. When we did an Interfaith build in 2018, the communities of faith represented were Kol Ami Synagogue, Islamic Association of Flower Mound, Baha'i Faith Lewisville, Flower Mound UMC, Trietsch Memorial UMC, First Presbyterian of Flower Mound, Creekwood Disciples of Christ. We're excited to work with local faith partners again to bring God's Kingdom to earth.

Check back to this page for updates on our kick-off date, registration, and who will be receiving the home. Thank you so much for your willingness to serve and provide the warmth and protection of a home to a family.

 

Reflecting on 2018

Benedict Tarmo has an amazing story of perseverance, trust, disappointment, and overcoming adversity. The Tarmo family was the recipient of the Habitat for Humanity house in 2018. It was a beautiful experience to see multiple faith traditions come together to love the Tarmos.

In all, 224 people participated in the build and we raised $110,000. That's $10,000 over the goal for the build! Trietsch had 38 people working on Saturdays and some during the week and it was so incredibly inspiring to see people giving up their personal time to install siding, paint walls, build a frame - even put up a shed. But even more inspiring was getting to see a completely diverse group of people working together with a common goal.

Read more about the build in Amy Parson's reflections from 2018, and stay tuned to see who we will build a home for in 2020.
