Fire Up Fellowship

with Richmond Habitat for Humanity 

 

Richmond Habitat for Humanity has ways for everyone in your congregation to make a difference in the lives of families in our community who need safe, decent, permanent housing.  

Getting members from throughout your congregation involved in this important mission is a great way to strengthen existing relationships and create new bonds that transcend age, life stage, and preferred worship styles.

 

Here are just some of the ways your members can support Habitat and create a shared passion and vision for meaningful outreach.

 

◊ Everyone can pray for those who need safe, decent, permanent housing around the world and those working to provide it in our community and elsewhere.

 

◊ You can choose a month and encourage your congregation to focus their outreach activities on Habitat that month, with your leadership team setting the example through their own participation.

 

◊ Adults of All Ages can fellowship with one another  by volunteering at a Build site or one of our ReStore locations. No experience is necessary and folks are especially needed Monday-Friday, making it perfect for retirees.

 

◊ Parents can volunteer at one of our ReStores or on a Build Site while the kids are in school and with their children ages 14+ at a ReStore or at a Build site with their 16+ year olds. No experience is necessary.

 

◊ Youth Groups can support our two Habitat ReStores by holding a furniture and building materials drive or fundraiser and volunteer at our ReStores (ages 14+ with an adult) or on a Build site (ages 16+).

 

◊ Youngsters (ages 5-12) can hold fundraising drives and participate in our Annual Youth LEGO Build, which is a fun-filled morning of LEGO building competitions held each November.   

 

◊ Young Adults can learn important skills for home ownership by volunteering at our Build sites. No experience is necessary and valuable knowledge is sure to be gained.

 

◊ Ladies Groups can participate in Women Build 2019 (held March-June) and volunteer together at one of our ReStores.

 

◊ Hospitality Ministry Members can prepare and deliver lunches to build crew volunteers.

 

◊ Professionals can advocate for Habitat at their workplaces and encourage those they work with to get involved by volunteering or donating. Habitat is a great way to introduce others to the wonderful work folks of faith are doing in our community.

 

And more! We would love to work with you to create personalized projects that reflect your congregation’s unique interests and coordinate all the details on our end to make your projects a success!
