    Let's Build It! Campaign
    Let's help one family's dream for a home become a reality!

    Our 'Let's Build It!' Campaign is back!

     

    Last year in 2019, MPC was able to completely fund and build a Habitat Home for Levon Wilkerson and her family. We had so much fun and were so blessed by this mission that we have decided to do it again!

    Having worked closely over the last several months with HabiJax® to determine when and how a second home could be built, we are thrilled to announce that construction, with full safety and health protocols, will likely began in December!

    We already have $46,000 of the $85,000 for this project so we are more than half way there!

    Please pray:

    • Pray for who the future homeowner will be.
    • Pray for how you or your family might be involved...and pray about what you or your family might be able to give financially.

    Let's help one family's dream for a home become a reality!

    If you have questions about how to get involved or want more information please contact the church by email or call the church office at 904-680-9944.
