Our Open Door Policy … to Make This Place Your Home


Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville

American Idol Season 11 winner, Phillip Phillips, won that competition with a catchy song titled “Home.”  No matter your musical preferences, the song offers some inviting lyrics both in verse and refrain. 

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

 Perhaps the song could be God’s invitation to become a member of First Presbyterian Church?  After all, our new vision statement reads “First Presbyterian Church is a church family where all generations exhibit Christ’s love though lives marked by gratitude, hospitality and generosity.”  

Enisa CeranicIn this case, it just as easily applies to our Habitat for Humanity home build project.  It is our goal to come alongside Enisa Ceranic and her young son, Amar, reminding them they are not alone because we’re going to make a place in Antioch their home. 

We will build their home over four weekends from September 14 – October 6.  Steve Butler and Les Coble will again co-chair our build and welcome your assistance as a Build Day Captain (recruits others to build one day); as a build volunteer (check out the daily build tasks to find a day best suited to your skill and energy level); or a food volunteer (offer to provide breakfast or lunch for the build team). 

Contact Patricia Heim in the Missions Office (615-298-9593 or pheim@fpcnashville.org) or either of our build co-chairs if you have questions or a special offer of help. 

Sign-up are easier than ever this year with a link from the church’s home page (www.fpcnashville.org) or, if you prefer, use our bulletin board in Courtenay Hall.  Enisa will visit FPC on Sunday, August 25 so let’s get that board filled before then with volunteers ready to surround her and Amar with love.  Come join us as together we make a place in Antioch their home!
