Greater Washington District Challenge
At his installation service on October 23, 2016, Rev. Dr. Gerry Green encouraged the Greater Washington District of the United Methodist Church to work together to create, fund and support the residents in as many units of affordable housing as possible through The Rev. Adrienne Terry Fund for Affordable Housing. The spontaneous offering that day symbolized the commitment to seeding this effort: $2,216.71 was collected!
DS Green’s goal is simple: 100% of the churches, campus ministries and new church starts are participating in this effort monthly or annually through 2020. Whether you or your congregation can house one person for one day a month ($43/month for 36 months) or for a whole year ($1,290/month for 36 months), every donation counts toward this goal.
With generous participation from the faith communities within the Greater Washington District, the hope is to purchase at least one home in honor of Adrienne Terry for a family by the end of 2017. We would like to have at least one Adrienne Terry Home in each county in the Greater Washington District and to leverage as much church property as possible by 2020.
