Carpenters For Christ

Giving Help and Hope for over 20 years

For 20 years, Highland Park United Methodist Church and Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity have partnered together to build homes, communities and hope. We are excited to celebrate our work together, which has helped make the dream of homeownership a reality for 300 families—100 right here in Dallas and an additional 200 around the world. But we’re not going to stop there! We have extended our partnership to impact even more families. Learn how you can be a part of this life changing partnership.

Provide lunches


Build days are typically Saturdays and no construction experience is required, only a desire to be a part of true transformation in the lives of those in need.

The HPUMC relationship with Habitat for Humanity dates back 20 years and embodies some of the Church's deepest principles, taken from the heart of the New Testament. The Apostle James says in Chapter 2, verse 18: "But someone will say 'You have faith; I have deeds.' Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do."
