Earning ‘sweat equity’ for member’s home


Accumulating hours of “sweat equity” is the goal of members of the Central church, Johnson City, Tenn., who are helping a fellow member, a single mother, qualify for a Habitat for Humanity house.
The congregation hopes the 60 hours of work required will be finished in time for construction to begin in February or March 2005, said Tim Hall, Central minister. Members are mowing yards and working at thrift stores to earn hours, he said.
