Thrivent Builds is a partnership between Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, Habitat for Humanity, and local Lutheran churches. Thrivent is sponsoring millions of dollars worth of homes built by Habitat around the country, with a special emphasis on the areas of the Gulf Coast that were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Thrivent provides much of the money, Habitat the know-how and partnership with families, and local Lutherans provide money, volunteer labor, and prayer.

This blog is to report progress on the Thrivent Builds partnership with Habitat for Humanity East Bay. Thrivent Builds is sponsoring a home at Habitat's Edes Avenue site, and counting on donations and volunteering from Lutherans and Thrivent members all across Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Welcome, and please join with us to make this partnership a success!
