Be a Welcoming Presence

During this time of transition it’s more important than ever to make connections to the people next to you in the pew. So if there’s someone who you don’t recognize, please say, “Hi, I don’t think we’ve met! I’m . . .” And please wear your name tag.

Habitat for Humanity Update

On Sunday, 12/16/18, two newly completed Habitat for Humanity homes were dedicated at the Harmony Cottages site at Harmony and Taft Hill Road. These homes were built in part by volunteers from St Paul’s, working alongside members of Trinity Lutheran Church and other FOCOLU churches in Fort Collins, and with months of sweat-equity put in by their prospective owners, the Masih and Taylor families. Above are photos of the two proud and happy families on their homes’ Dedication Day.

We are starting a new Habitat home in 2019. Our next two Build Dates are Saturday, 01/12/19, and Saturday, 03/30/19 (there is no build day in February). No experience is necessary, and all tools are provided. We could really use your help! Habitat staff need to prepare in advance, so please contact Gray Currier at least a week before the Build Date you’d like to come. Try it once, and you’ll want to come back!
