Help Build Hope
June 7-8, 2024

Last summer, we built all the walls for two homes, in just one day. Let's make it a habit.

Join us us as we build all the frame walls for 2 Habitat for Humanity houses in one day! Organized into teams of 5-10, we’ll hammer together 90 frame walls in just a couple of hours, which will be transported to a local foundation for Habitat for Humanity.

All ages and skill levels welcome! All the wood will be precut, so if you can swing a hammer or hold a 2x4 in place, we need you! We even provide the hammer and nails. Children are welcome to work with their families. - We will also have play ground attendants available if your kids need a little break from hammering!

There’s a job for everyone. “Crew Members” will build on the build day, but we’ll also need volunteers to cut wood on the Friday before.

Who is leading this project?
Help Build Hope events are organized and ran by Crossroads Missions ( Since 1999, Help Build Hope events have produced over 1,000 homes for families in need. Crossroads Missions partners with churches and local Habitat for Humanity organizations. They receive building plans from Habitat for Humanity, break them down into smaller plans, wall by wall, and then lead teams of volunteers to assemble each wall. Crossroads Missions will provide all the tools and a Director on the day of the build to guide our teams. The church needs to only provide volunteers. Go to or for more!

Where is this house going?
This year, we are partnering with Habitat of Kitsap County. We'll let you know the location of these homes as soon as it's narrowed down. We will have opportunities to "follow the house," and volunteer until completion! You can be a part of these houses going from a pile of lumber on the ground to a completed home!

How much the event cost?
The event costs nothing to participate! The church covers the cost of all the lumber, transportation, and administration through our Christmas Eve offering, fundraisers, and donations. There is no cost to participate! We just want you to come out and hammer some walls together! If you would like to donate, you can do so on our giving page.

Do I have to be a Christian to participate?
Absolutely not. Everyone is welcome! We believe that providing affordable housing is an expression of our Christian faith, but that work is not reserved for people who consider themselves Christians! Everyone is welcome. There won't be any bait-and-switch worship services or sermons. We're not trying to proselytize, we just want to build houses for families in need with you!

How old do children have to be to participate?
It is entirely up to parents/guardians if their children are able to help on the build day. All of the lumber will be precut, and there will be no power tools used--only hammer and nails. Pastor Ric's daughter has participated in Help Build Hope projects since she was 3. Of course, he's crazy. We will provide playground attendants if your kids need a break.

What do I need to bring?
Comfortable clothes, work gloves, sunscreen, and friends! Please leave your tools at home. We will provide all the hammers, nails, levels, and markers.

Social Justice Groups

In the summer of 2020, in the wake of protests for racial justice responding to the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and violence against other people of color, Faith Church began several learning groups to study issues of race and systemic injustice. These groups have read books, listened to podcasts, and watched movies to expand their perspectives.

Now, these social justice learning groups want to provide resources to help anyone else get started on their own learning journey about racial injustice.

Mondays at 10:00 am (weekly), led by Heather Raschko
Tuesdays at 2:00 pm (every 2 weeks), led by Marcia Rivers Smith
Thursdays at 7:00 pm (monthly), led by Fiona Gunn
Thursdays at 7:00 pm (every 2 weeks), led by Dan McLachlan

Contact the church office if you would like to get connected with one of these groups.
