All are Welcome to join in our Habitat Art Project

Men’s Ministry &  Family Ministry Habitat Project 

We have the 2x4s/studs for you to decorate with pictures, messages (including  signs if you wish), and/or with signatures.  Habitat for Humanity has 4,000 studs to build 15 houses this summer and wants to have the families who will help build their house see your message of welcome and caring for them before the studs are covered with siding or drywall.  This project will give that extra warm and welcome feeling to the house!  See the pictures included for examples of decorated studs – some in the framing below. 

We have the month of February to decorate.  Men alone or men with kids,  grandchildren, and mom can get the studs and decorate – one, or 2 or more studs at your house or with family groups. Pastor Andrew wants to have Family Ministry groups over at the parsonage (outside in the garage and/or on the driveway) to decorate.  More details to follow. 

All the activities, other than your in-home decorating (as you decide), will include COVID-19 compliance.

Here is the plan:
