On August 19, 2018 we celebrated home ownership with Andrea Wood and her family. Future neighbors, Turning Point volunteers and Andrea’s family all gathered to dedicate and bless their new home in Legacy Station. Thank you to everyone who supports Turning Point for giving the opportunity of home ownership to families like the Woods.
In order to become a home owner through Turning Point, people go through a lengthy process that includes a home buyer education class, a budget and planning process, and sweat equity volunteer work toward their home or other Turning Point projects. We have recently incorporated Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University into this process as well. We desire the process that our families go through and the resulting home ownership to be a turning point in their lives. For families that have struggled financially, Financial Peace University has shown to be a turning point as well.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first Financial Peace University class so that in addition to impacting Turning Point families we can bless the Edmond community as well. The class is available for anyone in the area who would like to join us. We are grateful to 1st Presbyterian Church of Edmond for providing their facilities for the class. The class begins Monday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m. If you would be interested in attending you may register and purchase your class materials through this link: https://www.fpucentral.com/classes/1064151/registration
What a joy it was to celebrate with Andrew and Hannah Maloney as we dedicated their new home at 216 N. Walnut in Heritage Village. We pray God’s blessings upon them as they begin life in their new home. Thank you to all supporters of Turning Point for making these celebrations of home ownership possible.
We were pleased to bless the home of Gabriel and Deborah Conteh yesterday at a Turning Point home dedication ceremony. Many of their family members, friends of Turning Point and board members were there to celebrate with them. Turning Point families work hard to become homeowners. They attend classes, work with an assigned mentor, create budgets, and volunteer their time for the construction of their home and donate time to community service. Thank you to everyone who attended the dedication and to everyone who helps Turning Point make homeownership a reality for families like the Contehs.
Today we had a very productive work day with volunteers from McBride. They shared their painting skills to bless two future Turning Point homeowners who were there as well. It is true what they say, “many hands make light (and fun) work”! Thank you McBride employees!
