Beautiful Savior in Fayetteville, North Carolina is constructing its own church building to meet the needs of its growing congregation. Sign up for a few days or a few weeks and use your God-given talents to bless this congregation so that more people can hear the good news of God's love. This is a continuation of the building project that began in February 2020.
Location: Fayetteville, North Carolina (near Fort Bragg)
Dates: February 9 - March 30, 2021
Volunteers needed: 30
Type of work: Minor drywall finishing, painting, finish carpentry
Housing: There will be an RV campground with 9 RV campsites available on the construction site. Two BFC campers are available for 3 weeks at a time for $75/week. Local hotels are also available at volunteer's expense.
Project Manager: Elwood Heldt
Beautiful Savior is a mission congregation of 130 people with approximately 60% of the congregation coming from Fort Bragg. The current worship facility is small and seats around 70 people. To accommodate this growing congregation, volunteers will be helping Beautiful Savior construct a new church building of about 4800 sq. ft. Volunteers will also remodel the current structure into a fellowship hall and do some remodeling in the parsonage.
The new building will be constructed of all wood and will be on a separate site from the existing building. Builders For Christ volunteers will do all of the rough and finish carpentry, wall insulation, siding installation, and soffit and fascia installation.
Volunteers should be aware that people will be coming and going from the construction site (i.e. local church members who volunteer, sub-contractors, short-term volunteers). Builders For Christ will be implementing safety procedures for all people who visit the construction site. Volunteers are also encouraged to follow CDC Covid-19 guidelines as well as local and state regulations.
Do I need to have previous experience to apply?
Each phase of the project requires different skills and numbers of volunteers, so if you’ve never lifted a hammer, you can still volunteer! Our experienced volunteers happily provide on-the-job training to those who need it.
What should I bring?
Volunteers should bring a hard hat and safety glasses, preferably with side shields. Please wear clothing that protects you from sharp and blunt objects. Shoes must have thick soles, thick sides, and toe material—tennis shoes will not be allowed. Volunteers use their own personal tools, such as a hammer, nail belt, 1”x25’ tape measure, speed square, utility knife with blades, pry bar, and chalk line. All other tools are provided by Builders For Christ.
Are there age restrictions?
Anyone 16 years of age or older may serve on a Builders For Christ project. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have an adult chaperone who will volunteer as their supervisor. Only volunteers age 18 and older are permitted to operate motor vehicles and power tools, climb ladders and scaffolding, work on a roof, or engage in any other hazardous activities.
Builders For Christ volunteers are the people who selflessly give up their time and construction skills to help congregations, schools, and organizations with their building projects.
