Surrounded by her family, friends and community organizations, Stacey Holmes, along with Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity staff and SPC members, participated in her new home dedication ceremony on July 14. This was followed by an official closing July 21, making Holmes a homeowner.
Participants of the ceremony included Bob Lambert, SPC Mission Ministry Chair; Suzanne Hayes, SPC Family Mentor, SPC Associate Pastor, Joanna Hipp and Habitat Construction Manager, Brian Troxler. In addition, Southport Trinity United Methodist Church Creation Care Team presented the family with LED lightbulbs, Recycle info plus a mixed green prayer shawl; Gail Burr & Dottie Johnson with the Oak Island Quilters, presented handmade quilts to the family; and an American Flag was presented by the Daughters of the American Revolution, Brunswick Town Chapter.
Southport Presbyterian Church was the first “House Sponsor” ever for Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity with a donation of $25,000 to offset building costs until the home was completed and the owner begins mortgage payments. The home is in the Sea Pines neighborhood of Southport. In addition to financial support, the Mission Ministry pledged a “Faith Stewardship” for Stacey, including a mentor, and will continue to pray for her as she journeys through this exciting endeavor and beyond.
