Thrivent Builds and Habitat for Humanity
By Bernie Lee
Synod Communicator, St. David, West Columbia
11 members from St. David and just as many from Living Springs Lutheran Church went to Arthurtown in Southeast Columbia SC on Saturday, October 13th, to renovate several Habitat houses built in the 1990’s. No experience was really needed. The Habitat crew divided us up into paint crews and a demolition/restoration crew. Pastor Boland said he loves watching HGTV and this day got to live it!
The persons provided with a Habitat house must work for it. They are required to put in 80 hours working on Habitat houses which one day one will be theirs. They also must attend classes on house maintenance, yard work and finances.
We will have more opportunities in 2019 to help Thrivent/Habitat for Humanity at other locations in the Midlands.
