This spring break trip will focus on helping the Chattanooga Habitat for Humanity build houses and run their retail store. Lipscomb has had a well-established relationship the past 15 years with the Appalachia affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, contributing to the progress of several houses in various ways including but not limited to installing windows, building door frames, roofing, painting, and doing home repairs. This year, those efforts will expand to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
In a unique opportunity to provide a service to a community in our own backyard, we offer the resources we have of time and energy to help the area prosper. The group will work on building a house throughout the week with the Habitat crew, starting with a foundation and ending with a decent, affordable home for a family in the area. No previous construction experience is required. The Habitat crew will provide all training necessary. By the end of the week you’ll be driving nails with the pros and will have put faith into action, a worker in the harvest field providing for the basic needs of others! (Matthew 9:38)
