What will you build for Lent?

Lent Build 40-day Calendar

This 40-day calendar focuses daily on prayer and sacrifice during Lent. Each day has a scripture and giving opportunity. When used in conjunction with the Habitat for Humanity house bank, the calendar raises awareness for faith communities.  Click here to print the Lent Build 40-day Calendar.

The banks are a great way for children, Sunday School classes, and anyone interested in contributing their spare change to help the Habitat cause, this small cardboard house bank features a slot for coin donations. Dimensions: 6 1/4W x 6 1/2 L.  Contact our Faith Engagement Manager  for more information.
