“…Whatever you did for one of the least of the brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40. This scripture is the forefront of our local Fulton county Habitat for Humanity Chapter. As we focus on our August Mission 2018 through the First Baptist Church. Rochester, please focus on this scripture as you consider a monetary donation for our local Habitat Chapter. The Fulton County Chapter has been assisting local neighbors since 1990. The supporters of the Fulton County Habitat for Humanity are continuously remembering the words of Matthew 25:40 as they work to “…Refresh neighborhoods, increase property values and benefit the entire community.” If you are able to contribute this month, please make your check payable to the First Baptist Church and mark “Habitat for Humanity” on the memo line. Thank you for your prayers and support for this significant group of volunteers and supporters within our own local community.
