Christ the King has built three Habitat for Humanity homes over the years. We raise the necessary funds and provide construction and painting volunteers every few years to help a working family who would not otherwise be able to realize the dream of home ownership. Donations are accepted for our Habitat for Humanity fund on an ongoing basis, and all funds donated to the fund are strictly reserved for that purpose in an interest-bearing account.
Christ the King partners with Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity at least once a year for Saturday Work Days at one of their Habitat for Humanity builds. Volunteers gather in the Parish Center Atrium at 8:30am for coffee and coordination, then everyone travels to the worksite and begin the workday at 9am. Volunteers pick a place to eat together at noon and go back to the worksite by 1pm. The workday ends around 3pm. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, and parental consent is required for all volunteers under age 18. Please wear work clothes, as we get dirty. There is no need to bring tools, but work gloves (and water bottles in hot weather) are a good idea. Watch your Sunday bulletin and CK Magazine for upcoming Habitat Work Day dates.
A Brush with Kindness is a locally-operated program sponsored by Habitat for Humanity, serving low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. Watch the Sunday bulletin and our Facebook page for the next time Christ the King will participate in A Brush with Kindness.
