HABITAT FOR HUMANITY. Colonial Heights Presbyterian has been involved with Habitat for Humanity over twenty three years. Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that seeks to share the love of Christ by creating partnerships with communities, families and volunteers to improve the quality of life for families in need by providing simple decent housing and opportunities for home ownership. Our church has completed over 25 homes. We’re beginning our plans for a next build. Volunteers are needed for construction, food for builders, and scheduling and organization.
LIVING WATERS FOR THE WORLD. LWW is a ministry sponsored by the Synod of the Living Waters which comprises the states of Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. LWW trains members of churches and civic organizations to install water purification systems in homes and communities that do not have access to municipal water systems both in the United States and internationally. CHPC became involved in this mission in 2010. So far, our team has installed a water system in a home in Tazewell, Tennessee and is scheduled to install several others in the next two years. Team members install the system, and train and counsel homeowners in its use and maintenance.
HOPE HAVEN MINSTRIES. Hope Haven is a ministry based in Kingsport that provides shelter and opportunities for the homeless. Hope Haven provides temporary shelter, job search and work programs and programs for the handicapped and for pregnant women in need. Our church provides monetary support for this worthy charity and many members of our church have served on the Board of Directors and as volunteers.
