Eight churches in Lexington and Rockbridge County appointed team members for Faith Build 2017. The members will recruit volunteers to work on a new Rockbridge Area Habitat house in Greenhouse Village starting in late August. The churches also pledge financial support to pay for construction materials.
Churches taking part so far are:
Bethesda Presbyterian Church and McElwee Chapel

Lexington Presbyterian Church
Manly Memorial Baptist Church
Trinity United Methodist Church
A Faith Build is an opportunity for congregations of all faiths to take part in a mission that directly impacts a local, low-income family. This type of project calls people to leave the halls of the faith building and to serve in a way that the original apostles served. Some congregations report they experience revitalization; that membership grows and members get excited about other mission opportunities. It's an opportunity for people of different faiths to build community through shared worship or cooperation.
