Put God's Love Into Action

Thrivent Faith Build 2018

Put God's Love Into Action. Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln and Thrivent have partnered to help make affordable housing and better communities a reality for families in Lincoln and Lancaster County. We invite your congregation to be part of Faith Build 2018! 

Thrivent Financial has awarded us with a $40,000 challenge grant to cover half the cost of a Habitat home. With your help, we can raise the other $40,000 needed to complete the build. 

Will you answer the call? 

As of August 2018, we are half way to our goal of $40,000 thanks to church sponsors, faith offerings and individual support. We need to raise another $20,000 to close the gap on the Faith Build Challenge grant by the end of the year.

What is a Faith Build?

A Faith Build brings local churches together to raise walls, funds, and prayers to build a house in partnership with a family in your community. 

It's an opportunity to live out your church's ministry, engage your congregation and see the miracle that occurs when God touches the hearts of new homeowners and the volunteers who worked alongside of them.
