A public dedication service and an open house will be held today for a house jointly rehabilitated by Lawrence Habitat for Humanity and First Christian Church.
The service is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. at First Christian Church, 10th and Kentucky. An open house will follow the service at the home, 820 Ind., until 4 p.m.
The house will be occupied by the family of Bobby and Lucinda Helm, who now live in rural McLouth.
The couple's home was the sixth local house to be completed by Lawrence Habitat for Humanity.
Originally, the house was located at 11th and Kentucky. It was moved by the First Christian Church as a gift for the church janitor, Bob Lewis, but Lewis died before work was finished.
After Lewis' death, the church joined with Lawrence Habitat for Humanity and other volunteers to prepare the house for the Helm family.
Among the people expected to speak at the service are Lawrence Mayor Bob Schulte; Lynn Goodell, city community development director; and the Rev. Ron Goodman, pastor of the First Christian Church.
