Faith Relations

Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County brings individuals, families and communities together to build affordable homes with those in need. Founded in Christian principles we welcome all people, regardless of religious preference or cultural background, to join us in bringing safe, simple, affordable housing available in Bucks County.

Creative ways that faith groups are supporting our mission–

Bux-Mont Christian Church– raised money and held two build events on their parking lot, fully framing the walls of two homes.
Family of God Lutheran Church in Buckingham made this project the recipient of their Vacation Bible School donations. The children decorated 2×4’s with messages of faith and love – which were used in building a home!
2nd Baptist Church – Doylestown hosted a Choir Concert to benefit The House that Faith Built.
Evangelical Lutheran Church of Durham put special offering envelopes in their bulletins for a month and raised over $1000.
Point Pleasant Baptist Church hosted “Music in the Meadow,” on Saturday, September 21, 2013 as an afternoon of music for the whole family, proceeds benefited “The House that Faith Built.”

“One of the signs of a healthy congregation is that members can look beyond themselves and look toward others. I think Habitat provides an excellent way to do that.”
