Habitat House Service Project
Bishop Family Home
In late February 2016, the Bishop family moved into their new home at 145 Carter Street (between Baxter and Broad in the area behind Autozone). As part of the local outreach component of our Capital Stewardship Campaign, our congregation pledged some $70,000 to build a Habitat for Humanity home in our community. Beginning on Saturday, July 11 2015, we worked to turn our pledge into a reality. Assisted by Ebenezer Baptist Church, West, and the Presbyterian Student Center at UGA, we supplied a team each Saturday throughout the summer and well into the fall. Some tasks required a certain level of physical strength or expertise in various contracting tasks, but many other tasks were performed by any willing worker 18 or older (16 and 17-year-olds worked together with an on-site guardian, and younger volunteers performed certain specific jobs). Feel free to contact Don DeMaria, Richard Lane, or Jack Vandiver (or Outreach chairs Sally Vandiver or Joe Neighbors) if you have questions.
