HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Rockville United Church built strong foundations in Garrett County with Habitat for Humanity. Beginning in 1990, RUC sent dedicated adults and youth to Garrett County to build homes for a week in July. Later we partnered with Bethesda United Church of Christ and the United Church of Christ Seneca Valley for a successful building adventure and fellowship.
In addition to dedicating time and exceptional talents to work in construction, we spent the entire year putting God's love into action by raising funds through holiday wreath sales, a Spring dinner and the huge church yard sale the third weekend in May, for the purpose of pursuing social justice and equality by building affordable housing for needy families.
As we move on, knowing we can no longer serve in the same capacity as before, we can know that we served this important mission with willing hearts and great efforts and did make a difference!
