RAPID PROGRESS ON HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PRESBYTERIAN/METHODIST HOUSE #27
PARTNER FAMILY WILL ATTEND OUR SEPT. 30 WORSHIP SERVICE

Volunteers from our church began working on Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s Presbyterian/Methodist House # 27 in Arden on July 27, and over the first four weeks of construction contributed more than 70 hours of work on four different dates. 

Building continued through August 25, and then resumed after a week off.  Faith partner volunteers will continue to help through September with work including siding, porch framing, flooring, stucco, paint and trim.  WWPC members and friends are scheduled to work on five different dates during the month. 

Just past noon on Friday, Sept. 21, Habitat will host a special “kickoff” event for this house as well as the Interfaith house also being built in Arden.  A potluck lunch will be served, and all volunteers who have worked on either house or are scheduled to work are invited to attend.

On the final Sunday of the month, Sept. 30, the future owner of Presbyterian/Methodist house # 27, Shaketia Simpson, and her children, DaMarion and Mahogani, will attend our worship service and be introduced to the congregation.  A special offering to help with the purchase of building materials for the house will also be received that morning.
