Support For Habitat For Humanity

The Habitat for Humanity OC/Presbyterian Coalition

is a partnership of churches across Los Ranchos Presbytery

that are working together to support a new Habitat for Humanity

$10,000 grant to support this effort.


We hope to have folks continue their historic support of

Habitat for Humanity by participating in the build days

and various volunteer opportunities. Contact Dave Ludwig

Our Thursday Homework Club, meets at Kinoshita Elementary School every Thursday at 2:00 p.m..  Principal Pedraza is thrilled to be partnering with us and is so grateful for this extra assistance for their 3rd, 4th,and 5th grade students.


I am so thankful for the many people who have stepped up to make this important outreach activity a reality.  We could always use more hands.  If you can give even one day a month, it would make a big difference.  The kids are so sweet and the work is so rewarding. 


I hope you'll consider joining us.
