You want the antidote to all the fussin' and feuding on social media?  It's as simpHabitat for Humanity Build the Walls eventle as picking up a hammer and joining hundreds of people this Saturday April 27, 2019 at the Christ's Church Mason campus to help build the walls for 3 homes!  The annual Build The Walls event is the best of humanity and it's an amazing event to participate in!  And you'd think building all the walls for 3 homes would take quite a bit of time, but realistically it's just a few hours from first hammer swing to everything loaded on the trucks for transport!

That's what can happen when hundreds of people team up to get something done!

There's a lot of prework done to make this event a success.  A mission group coordinates events like these around the country and they lend their expertise.  They'll come with plans for each wall and Friday April 26th a cut team will prep all the lumber.

Come Saturday morning the lumber will be stacked and labeled.  Dozens of teams are formed ranging in age to barely old enough to swing a hammer to some folks that have been there and done that for quite a few decades.  Team leaders are in charge of each group of 4-7 people, so pull a plan, build wall, repeat, repeat, repeat until the last wall is done!  Some walls are pretty simple, and others a bit complicated (doors and window openings add to the complexity).

 

Saturday morning starts early with breakfast/check-in (7:30-8:30) and then a short worship celebration and instructions on the day's activities.

 

Obviously the more volunteers, the quicker it gets done.  A typical Build The Walls event will have each team build 4-6 walls and finishing up a bit after noon.

The event is open to 5 years old and up!  Some families form their own teams, but you can expect to see everyone from grandkids to grandparents at this event.

Tools are supplied, but if you've got a favorite hammer, bring it.  Work Habitat for Humanity Build the Walls eventgloves are recommended and I'll warn you now, we're working in the parking lot, so kneeling on the asphalt can get hard on the knees.  If you've got suitable kneepads, bring them too!  Dress for the day's weather, rain or shine it's a go (barring lightning nearby!).  


EVERYONE is welcome to this event!!  You don't have to be a member of Christ's Church at Mason to volunteer (although we will ask you to register for the event at this link

Doing something for others is always the best way to take yourself away from all the stress and fighting and politics of the day and just do something good for somebody else. It can be a great thing. :)
