habitat volunteers neededApostle’s Build Needs YOU!

Habitat is so thankful for everyone’s hard work and dedication to the building project we are involved in. We could not do all of this without you! It looks like the Apostles home is sliding a little behind schedule and so they opened up two extra weeks at the end. All of the dates have been added to http://vhub.at/apostlesbuild and if you could sign up to volunteer, that would be great! ***Some key dates are January 6 and January 20 and some Thursdays and Fridays are open too.*** If you didn’t get a chance to help out, now is your chance!!! Let’s show them our Asbury heart!
