St John UMC has partnered with Habitat for Humanity and several area churches to build a house for a great family. Habitat has been an important outreach for St John for many years, and we continue to invest time and resources in the mission of Habitat.
This year, St John will be participating in a build for Monica Berry and her family. Ms. Berry has worked as a food assistant for a school for over 17 years. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering at Cruz's (her nephew) school, listening to music and watching HGTV. Cruz is a very busy 4 year old, and his favorite things are Mickey Mouse and Paw Patrol. Ms. Berry recalls that the best memory of her life was when she received custody of Cruz. She now wants a home of her own so that Cruz can play in the yard. She also believes a home will further her self worth, and she can't wait to share it with her family.
This year, we will be building on Saturdays from May 5th to June 30th, except May 26. All builds are 7:30 - 3:30 and begin and end at the new Berry home. For additional information, please click HERE or contact Missions Chair, Susan Hannan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
