Volunteer for Peace Church’s Habitat for Humanity Project
Save the dates: August 14 — 16
Mission trips don’t have to happen somewhere else, it’s much harder to truly see the need in our own back yard. This summer Peace Church and Habitat for Humanity will again be partnering to give a hand up to a neighbor in need right here in the Twin Ports. James of Superior, WI has a home that could use a “brush with kindness” and volunteers from the Peace Church are needed to put their servant hearts into action and their paint brushes to good use. James has owned his home for the past 13 years and always planned to put in the work it takes to maintain that home. As we’ve all experienced, even the best laid plans can sometimes be thrown out of whack. James had a fall and injured his leg, he’s no longer able to paint his home by himself as he had planned.
Once James came to terms with the fact that he wouldn’t be able to maintain his home without help, he knew just who to ask. With the Habitat for Humanity ReStore practically in his back yard, James was a regular at the store and last Fall finally got up the courage to ask for help. He learned that he qualified for Habitat for Humanity’s home repair program, A Brush With Kindness. By working alongside James this summer, Peace Church volunteers will help this homeowner to age in place with grace and dignity. As James puts it, “It will relieve a lot of stress knowing my house is protected with some fresh paint.”
This will be a 3 day local mission trip taking place August 14, 15, and 16 from 9am-3pm each day. James needs a fresh coat of paint on his home and some carpentry repairs to his window frames and siding. If you can volunteer for only a day or only a couple of hours each day you will be appreciated. If you have questions contact Jim McLean 218-464-8975 and watch for the sign-up sheet by the office.
