Building on Faith 2015
Building a house filled with love and joy.
From October 2nd through November 7th, six churches participated in our Building on Faith, bringing teams which filled the construction site with enthusiasm and eagerness as the volunteers learned how to build a house. Men and women of all ages took up their hammers with gusto, and began the process of home building from the ground up. The Alliance Church began the Faith Build, with a team of men, and they began the framing of the house on its beautiful site on Hamilton Street, New Smyrna Beach.

Members of the Rotary Club offered their skills on Thursday, August 20th, helping build the new duplex on Sheldon St. They enjoyed their experience so much that they came back two days later bringing a larger work force. We were glad for the help on a hot summer’s morning, as we finished this town home for people in need in our community.

Our Habitat Journey
by family partner Sarah Spanos
Here are a few of her words at their home dedication in July, 2015.
"We have witnessed a community of people coming together to help us reach our goal of a better life for our kids...Together, we have built much more than a house. Together, we have been the hands and feet of Jesus. My prayer is that this home is always used for His glory and the furthering of His kingdom. This is a house, but it will become a symbol of security, of determination, of perseverance, of community, of love."
