Church cancels Sunday services to build home for single mother
theBridge Foursquare Church in Christiansburg has announced that normal Sunday morning services will be suspended this week (October 8th, 2017), as the church will gather together in their parking lot to construct a 3 bedroom home for a single mother in Roanoke County.
The build is in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Help Build Hope (Louisville, KY) the Town of Christiansburg and theBridge Salem Campus pastored by Joey Lyons. Over 300 church members will gather to construct the home in under four hours, rain or shine on Sunday. The project, titled, “Serve Our City: Home Edition”, will be an epic undertaking for the church and all involved.
Senior Pastor Will Fillingham carries a deep-seated passion for the local church to engage the needs of the community and to lead his church outside of the four walls of traditional ministry. “If our community has a problem, then our church should have a problem,” Pastor Fillingham was quoted as saying.
The house build will begin at 9:30am on October 8th at the Christiansburg Campus located at 880 Life Drive in Christiansburg, just off of exit 114 at I-81. There will be a 30-minute window of worship and prayer prior to the home build, and arrangements are being made for the homes new owner to be on-site during the construction. Lunch will be provided and children will have an opportunity to participate by constructing over 60 birdhouses made available by Lowes Home Improvement in Christiansburg. The birdhouses are being donated to New River Agency on Aging, and will be distributed to elderly residents in the New River Valley.
