2017 Project Christmas House

When: All Day From December 26, 2017 to January 1, 2018
Location: Durant, Mississippi

‘Project Christmas House’ is a project of the Purchase District that builds a house every year for families that have lost their homes due to natural disasters and who fall through the cracks of conventional help. This year’s Christmas house will be built for a single mom with 4 children whose home was destroyed by a tornado. She is on a fixed income and has no insurance. We are asking EVERY UM CHURCH in the district to help. The ways WE NEED YOUR help are:

  • Prayers - please pray for this project, funding, workers, etc.
  • Payers - we need $30,000 to assist with building the home
  • Players - those who go and serve on the job site (cooks, carpenters, laborers, electricians, etc.)

We need all who are willing to give of their time from 1 day to 1 week. Bring your family and show your children what Christmas is truly about.

  • WHO: All who can
  • WHAT: Build a Home
  • WHEN: Dec. 26 - Jan. 1
  • WHERE: Durant, MS (volunteers will stay in Kosciusko, MS)
  • WHY: Servanthood

The deadline for donations to be applied to the 2017 Project Christmas House is December 15. Please make checks payable to the Purchase District, write “Christmas House” in the memo line, and mail it to 2285 Jack Treas Rd., Kirksey, KY 42054.
