Faith Build, a Habitat for Humanity project

Hopedale is a participating congregation in Faith Build, a Habitat for Humanity project. Oxford area churches are joining together with Miami students and other community organizations to fund and build the ninth and tenth Habitahouses in the development of Reckford Woods  on Fuller Way (near US 27 west of Oxford). The home-buyer family contributes over 500 hours of sweat equity” in the building of the house. 

Oxford Presbyterian Church, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, St. Mary Catholic Church, Oxford United Methodist Church, Faith Lutheran Church, and Hopedale have all banded together for this venture.  

You don’t have to be a skilled house builder to participate! No experience is necessary, and all tools, equipment, and supervision are provided. The Habitat workers provide the expertise and the Miami students provide the oomph!

People 16 and older can work on the house and those who are younger can help with making and serving lunch. You can contribute in many ways: work on the house, prepare lunch for the volunteers, make individual contributions, and support fundraisers for Habitat. Please call or email Liz Woedl at 513-280-1044 or if you are interested and have questions. You can signup to work on the Projects at 

Look Who’s Building Houses!

Faith Build Habitat for Humanity Projects Update





The house we started working on in November 2017 is soooo very close to completion. The driveway didn’t get poured last week so they put off the dedication until Saturday, June 9, 1pm.

The five, Oxford area churches have accomplished much during the past several months, in spite of interference from delays due to challenging weather. Thanks, everyone, for your dedication and strength.

The UU part of the work crew is next scheduled to be at Carter Court on June 30 and July 28. If you’d like to give us a hand with the build or help with lunch prep, please give me a call at 513-280-1044.
