The family has been chosen and the foundation is in place for the Charlotte County Habitat For Humanity - Apostles Build 2018. Gulf Cove United Methodist is one of nine area churches committed to building and contributing funds for this home. Slab blessing and wall raising will take place on Friday January 12, 9am at 21472 Dranson Ave, Port Charlotte. We are also in need of helpers to install facia boards and house wrap on Wednesday January 24, 9am - 3pm. Please contact Sam Walters or Larry Davis if you are interested in participating in either of these events.Contributions towards our $4,200 pledge can be placed in the offering plate, in an envelope marked Apostles Build, or in a box at the back of the church near a building stud which you are welcome and encouraged to sign.

The Apostles’ Build is where 12 area churches fund and build a home in Charlotte County for a low-income family. Our Church Council agreed to participate this year by committing to raise 1/12 of the cost of home sponsorship ($4,200). Church members may also commit to “swing a hammer” and join in the actual construction. Our build date is January 23 and we are assigned to setting the trusses. If you want to make a difference, please call Jerry Spurgeon @ 941.232.1179. The address of the build site is 1306 Viscaya Drive, Port Charlotte.

Kenia came to meet and thank the members of GCUMC Sunday January 10, 2016. Kenia is a delight to know and will light up anyone's day.
