Service

When we become members of the United Methodist Church we vow to uphold it by "our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness."

Here is one of the ways we make ourselves available by our service:

Habitat for Humanity - Anchorage

Volunteers from our church help build Habitat Houses one Saturday a month during the construction season. No matter your skill level, there's a place for you on the work team. Contact Leha or Phil Manderson.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that works to eliminate substandard housing in Anchorage and to make adequate housing a matter of conscience and action. Habitat welcomes partners from any faith who are willing to pick up a hammer to help improve the lives of families needing decent shelter. Habitat is a hand up, not a handout. Habitat builds homes in partnership with qualifying low income families who are selected based on their need for housing, their ability to repay a no-profit, no-interest mortgage, and their willingness to partner with Habitat. Because of Habitat's no-profit, no interest loans, and because the homes are mostly built with volunteer labor, mortgage payments are affordable for low-income families.
