Habitat Puts Their Faith Into Action
(Jonesboro, GA) On Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at 8:30am Habitat invites you to celebrate the kick-off of an Interfaith Build at Austin Meadows in Lovejoy. Mt. Zion High School will be raising the walls that they constructed in their classroom and will get to see the impact of their hard work. Jeni, a single mother with 2 children, who is a flight attendant and part time fitness instructor will get to see the first walls put up in her new home. Churches and civic organizations from all of Habitat’s service area have been invited to join this great event.
The history of the Interfaith build with Habitat began in 2006. The Interfaith Forum of Habitat for Humanity International unanimously affirmed the call to end poverty that is shared by the world’s religions, along with the conviction that decent housing for all is critical to achieving that goal. The result was a commitment to mobilizing interfaith groups around the world in answer to our mission. Those that will be participating in this build include Mt. Zion High School, the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, Destination Church, Knights of Columbus, Emory and Henry College, Tau Alpha Delta, Klassy Kreation and more.
Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity is first and foremost a housing ministry. We welcome all religions to come together with mutual values in pursuit of our shared goal to help families in need. With your help we can present a unified picture of “faith in action” to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live!
Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity would like to have as much of the community involved as possible in this very special Interfaith Build 2015. For more information about the Interfaith build, please call 770-477-2367.
