On Sunday, July 17th, Messiah Lutheran Church was visited by Frank Childs from Thrivent and the Moore family. The Moore family is the owner of the Habitat For Humanity Home that members of Messiah helped construct this year. We have been blessed as a congregation by the opportunity to get to know and work with this awesome family. We are also thankful for the leadership and support provided by Thrivent. We can’t wait until next year’s habitat build.
Here are some pictures from this year’s build.
