Habitat for Humanity of Denton County has launched an interfaith build to construct a home for a local family, the organization announced last week.

The 2021 Interfaith Build will bring together 10 congregations of different faiths to build a home for a family in Denton. The build will begin with a celebration event Wednesday at Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church, with Denton County Judge Andy Eads serving as master of ceremonies. The home will be built at 506 Wye St. in Denton alongside a Habitat partner family beginning in December and is expected to be completed next spring.

The partner family will invest over 400 hours into the home build and will purchase it with a zero-interest mortgage.

Participating congregations, which are also home sponsors, include the Baha’i Faith Center, Creekwood Christian Church, Faith Lutheran Church, Flower Mound United Methodist Church, Islamic Association of Lewisville/Flower Mound, Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, St. Andrew Presbyterian Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, The Village Church and Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church.
