[Georgetown, DE, February 8, 2022] St. John’s United Methodist Men’s Group of Seaford recently hosted a neighborhood dinner to honor the work that Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) has done in Seaford.

St. John’s Men’s Group member Tom Wimbraugh was the representative that reached out to SCHFH to coordinate the dinner which was scheduled immediately after a House Dedication ceremony for the Dorsant family. Several neighbors, St. John’s Men’s Group members, Seaford Mayor and delegates from the community attended the Dedication to welcome the family to the neighborhood. Close to 50 people then gathered at the church hall at St. John’s on Pine Street where there was prayer, worship music, great food, fellowship and raffle drawings.

Mr. Wimbraugh commented that, “Prior to Sussex County Habitat coming to the neighborhood, it didn’t feel like the safest community. In the past several years, Habitat has made a major and dramatic difference by building five new homes within eyesight of our church and the neighborhood has improved exponentially. This dinner is our way of saying thank you and welcoming the new families into our community.”

As we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is wonderful to see that St. John’s United Methodist Men’s Group is promoting his vision in the Seaford community.
