Every year on a Sunday of December, Greene County Habitat for Humanity celebrates Everyone Needs a Stable Home. First United Methodist Church hosts the Festival which is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. A musical concert, a soup supper, a pie auction and a Nativity display bless all who attend. Church choirs, small groups, soloists all make the musical concert truly memorable. All churches help supply food and workers for this great annual event.
