I received an email late last week asking for help moving one of The Dwelling Place families and my two older boys and I were able to lend some helping hands on Saturday. The day would have been spent as part of our second TC SERVE collaboration with area CRC churches had the event not been negated by the coronavirus.
Two years ago we sent a TC SERVE team of enthusiastic Faith church students out for demolition work prior to the renovation of one of The Dwelling Place houses. I was impressed by their commitment and the amount of progress they made that day. Give a kid a hammer and a wall to knock down or a bathroom to tear apart and watch them go to work! Seeing the inside of one of those finished houses on Saturday and connecting with a family that had benefited from a safe place to stay brought things full circle and was a huge blessing.
The great people of The Dwelling Place continue to express their thankfulness to Faith church for all of those who volunteer their time, donate funds and supplies, and support the important work they do in our community. I've been delighted over the past year to see how many people from Faith are engaging with this ministry.
Information on the next big event, the annual fall gala scheduled for October 9, will be coming out soon!
