Abraham’s Tent 2017

January 16th-22nd, the men of Abraham’s Tent again will follow a star to First Presbyterian Church. The twelve men from the Columbus House Shelter program will make their way to the Owens Community Building for a week starting Monday, January 16th Sunday school classrooms will become bedrooms. The Miller Hall will be transformed into a dining hall and commons space. A group of First Church volunteers will welcome our guests each night at 6, enjoy a home cooked meal together, play some games or just sit and talk before lights out so that all can get a good night’s sleep. Morning comes early with a home cooked breakfast before the men leave for the day.

Many volunteers have signed up, but more hosts, cooks and companions would be welcome. See the sheets in the Gathering Hall. If you have any questions speak to Brian Grey, Mary Webber, Paula Burkhard or Pat Wales.

A final planning meeting will take place on Sunday, January 8th during the Potluck Lunch. Join friends new and old as together we journey, following the light of Christ, spreading good news, and bringing hope to those who know hurt and despair. Perhaps this year we too will experience an epiphany and discover something new about ourselves and our community.
