Saturday, May 4, 2019 When our morning Many Beliefs Serving Together volunteers arrived on May 4th, there was only a slab. By the time the afternoon shift stopped, the Habitat for Humanity home was framed and many of the exterior panels were in place. It looked like a house! The Interfaith Alliance community service group, Many Beliefs Serving Together, worked alongside other groups and the couple who will be the home owners. We took a break for snacks and sharing about our perspectives and experiences in our faith lives. It was a good day!!
