Habitat for Humanity

Over the years, First Presbyterian Church has participated 66 local Trinity Habitat for Humanity builds! Our church generally participates with two builds a year, doing everything from framing to painting to bringing lunch to the job site. 

2017 Presbyterian House Build

The next Presbyterian House Build with Habitat for Humanity will include members from Presbyterian churches in the county coming together to build a home for the Daniel Thang family at 1416 Stewart St, Fort Worth, 76104. Daniel and his wife, Vum Nyam, have two children, Khrih Nun Uk (18) and Thian Nun Mawi (17).
