Raise the Roof

Habitat for Humanity of Greater NashvilleFor the first time in our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, First Presbyterian Church will build a Habitat home for one of its own employees. Our own property staff team member, Erica Greene, has qualified for a Habitat home and been assigned to FPC as our partner family. If you were blessed to be at worship on Sunday morning, August 5, you may have had a chance to hear Erica give a Minute for Mission, or perhaps you visited with her and her family in Courtenay Hall or in your Sunday School class later that morning.

Now you have a chance to work on-site with Erica to lovingly build the home soon to be occupied by her and her four children. We will work every Saturday AND Sunday (we only stop for lightning or extreme downpours) from September 15 through October 7. Mickey Martin and Michael Baron, co-captains for the final build day, promise the home will be finished and dedicated on Sunday, October 7, so plan now to join them at the celebration.

All tools and supplies for every build day are provided by Habitat so all you need to bring is a friendly and a can-do attitude! The build is set in southeast Davidson county; specific directions will be available closer to the build date. This is the perfect project for a Sunday School Class or group of friends or co-workers. All volunteers must be at least 16 years old and youth volunteers require parental permission ahead of time.

FPC has committed to provide 25-30 volunteers each build day. There are jobs for all skill levels with a special need for lunch providers for our hungry builders. You’ll want to commit early to reserve your volunteer spaces for this very exciting project here at FPC.

Sign-ups have begun in Courtenay Hall for this special home build. Won’t you join us? Contact our fall build co-chairs, Steve Butler and Les Coble, with any questions or special offers of assistance. Patricia Heim in our Missions Office is also available to answer questions or assist (615-298-9593 or adultmissions@fpcnashville.org).
