Congregations participating in Foothills Presbytery Habitat collaborative build:
With the number of COVID-19 cases in SC, and in the Greenville area in particular, being so high Habitat for Humanity/Greenville has postponed the build dates for the Foothills Presbytery building project at 102 Jim Logan Street.
The tentative new date for beginning is middle to late August but will be amended again if there is not a steady decrease in the number of new cases and the percentage of positive cases.
A revised schedule of dates and the work to be done will be sent soon but I wanted to get this information to you. Also included will be a copy of Habitat’s safety protocols that will be in place for you to share with volunteers so they can make an informed decision about volunteering. When work does begin, the schedule will be for fall hours: 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
An update about the financial needs of the project will also be sent as we learn what will be needed to bring the project to completion.
Safety is the priority and your patience and continuing support of this ministry is greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions.
grace and peace,
