Bathroom at Cagle HouseWhen the bathroom floor of Backpack Blessings’ headquarters rotted out recently, Mt. Bethel’s Handy Helpers were there to replace it. For repair needs big and small, this dedicated team of men are literally the hands, feet, and power tools of Christ.

The Handy Helpers provide the leadership – and a lot of the labor- for our annual Habitat House build. In between, they take on projects on campus, for our mission partners, and in the community. Here are just a few of the many examples:

  • On Campus: Every year, the Handy Helpers set the stage for VBS, and assemble the creche for our Live Nativity. They also build the start/finish line for the Habitat Road Race, and have made the sets for countless other special events over the years. Last fall, they built a new roof structure over the Scout Hut behind the Field of Dreams. It was a joint effort of the Handy Helpers and the Troop 1011 parents. See pictures of their work on campus »
  • The Garden: Handy Helpers projects have made the Garden a more comfortable and safer place for the residents by building out the cubicle bedrooms, upgrading the kitchen, and adding bathrooms and showers (among many other projects). See pictures »
  • Disaster Relief: When storms or other disasters strike, Handy Helpers respond. Most recently, they got your donations of water and other needed supplies to the flood victims in South Carolina, and helped clean up storm damage in North Georgia.
  • Household jobs: The Handy Helpers have served many folks in the community – whether Mt. Bethel members or not – with projects to make their homes more livable and safe. See pictures »
