Church connects VBS to Habitat for Humanity project

University Christian Church, Fort Worth, Texas, sponsored Under Construction– A Habitat for Humanity Vacation Bible School. UCC has been a participant in Habitat for Humanity home builds for years and this curriculum created a connection between the Disciples Home Build and the children.

Each day, children ages 2-3rd grade did service projects to be donated to Trinity Habitat for Humanity. Throughout the week they made bird houses, stepping stones, and welcome home kits (new trash cans filled with hand soap or dish soap, all purpose cleaner, and trash bags). Kids also prayed for the families receiving them, enclosing a hand written blessing card in each kit.

Mission VBS (4th and 5th grade) kids went to a home site for a tour. They built two front porch benches to be donated through Trinity Habitat for Humanity. They also painted bed frames for Room in the Inn (an outreach program which UCC participates in), visited Stonegate Nursing Center and took a cultural district sculpture walk and prayer tour.
