On September 21st and 22nd about 20 Elkhorn Hills UMC members worked in the beautiful weather to put up siding on the 2018 Habitat for Humanity house in Waterloo, NE. They used power saws, hammers, pneumatic nailers, caulking guns, elbow grease, and teamwork to get the job done.
“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
The Elkhorn Hills UMC congregation also provided meals for the workers on September 21st and 22nd. By all accounts, the food was awesome!
Thank you to all who contributed and participated to this worthy mission!

About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Omaha has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat Omaha welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize.
This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
