The Orange Shirts

shirts1Have you seen them? Floating around East Cobb this month, you may have seen some shockingly bright orange shirts. What are they for? No, we are not suddenly supporting the University of Tennessee! You see, the Habitat Advocate for Mt. Bethel is a marketing gal, and she knows that bright colors get your attention.

Those brave souls sporting the orange shirts at church are promoting the Habitat Ministry at Mt. Bethel because we need your support! Every year, Mt. Bethel donates the money and manpower to build a home. A carefully selected Habitat family invests hundreds of sweat-equity hours working on their own home and several others as well. Once they move in, they pay a monthly mortgage (interest free) to Habitat. In turn, Habitat uses the mortgage income for operations, buying land for future builds, and building homes internationally. It’s a beautiful cycle!

We’ve been working on the house since August, and now it’s time to have some fun. The Habitat Road Race is our annual fundraiser, and we would love to share our orange shirts with you (don’t worry, the actual race shirts aren’t quite as bright)! Bring the entire family on Saturday, October 8, for some running or walking, live music, bounce houses, donuts, and so much more.

It’s only $20 for a morning of fun that supports a great cause, but the price goes up to $25 on Wednesday, October 5, so sign up now at!
