Since 1994, our church has built 14 houses for families in Blount County. Each
family who lives in a Habitat House is required to give 350 hours of sweat equity
(working on other peoples’ homes as well as their own). They also make monthly
payments before the home is built to save approximately $1,500 for their down
The total cost of building a Habitat for Humanity House is more than $120,000. Our
church is asked to provide at least $48,000 of the building cost as well as supply lots of volunteers!
This Easter please consider making an offering above and beyond your regular giving that would offer hope and new beginnings to a family who is already working hard to make
dreams become a reality.
Habitat of Blount County has designated 1st United Methodist’s 15th home in honor
of 1st UMC member, Bill Mueller. Bill has worked on hundreds of homes through Habitat and has
taught so many volunteers the skills and patience needed to bring hope and home
to folks in our community.
