The Mustangs spent seven hours on Saturday, April 25, working with the group on exterior projects, including roofing framework in preparation for putting shingles on in the coming weeks. The Mustangs will continue work this Saturday, as the construction crew looks to finish the roof and begin putting siding on the house.

Carpenters for Christ is a servant organization led by lay members of Highland Park United Methodist Church, and through this ministry HPUMC has the largest commitment to Habitat for Humanity of any single church congregation in the world. The HPUMC relationship with Habitat for Humanity dates back 18 years and embodies some of the Church’s deepest principles.

It has built over 100,000 homes in the United States alone. Highland Park United Methodist Church has been partnering with Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity for 19 of the 29 years the affiliate has been in operation and is responsible for 8% of the Habitat homes built in Dallas.
