Spring 2018 Faith Build

Faith Build 2018

Thrivent Financial has generously offered to match 50% of the cost to build a home and challenges the faith community to do the same! If we all come together to build a home the heavy burden will become lighter as we join as a group to provide a proven pathway out of the cycle of poverty in our community. Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity wants this to be a joining of all the members of the faith community in Weld county to help fully fund and build this home for a deserving Partner family. We hope to begin building by February 2018.

One upcoming event on December 16th is the Cookie Walk, where participating congregations and youth groups provide home baked cookies to be sold by the dozen to raise funds for this effort. This event will take place at Zoe’s Cafe and Events on 715 10th st Greeley from 11 am to 3 pm.

 

Thrivent Builds

Thrivent Financial is a financial services organization that helps Christians be wise with money and live generously. For more than 100 years, we’ve helped our member-owners show God’s love to others by being good stewards of the gifts they’ve been given.

We see money as a tool, not a goal. Our unique approach to blending faith, finances and generosity helps our members thrive, but that’s only part of our story. We also support programs that help build stronger families, churches and communities. You could call it a fresh way to think about money. We call it The Thrivent Way.

For over a decade, Thrivent Financial has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build safe, affordable homes in partnership with those living in poor housing conditions in the US and all around the globe. Over all, the combined efforts of Thrivent Builds and Habitat for Humanity has resulted in more that 5.2 million volunteer hours and $226 million contributed to helping families in need.

Thrivent Builds partnership has three programs:

  • Thrivent Builds Homes

  • Thrivent Builds Repairs

Gives repair for existing homes for those who don’t have the resources or ability to make repairs themselves.

  • Thrivent Builds Worldwide
