Abraham’s Tent

Abraham’s Tent – January 17-24
First Presbyterian Church will be participating again this year in Abraham’s Tent, a group of local congregations providing Columbus House with an overflow sheltering program for ten homeless men living in New Haven. We will open our doors for hospitality, dinner, overnight shelter, and breakfast from the evening of January 17th through the morning of January 24th.

Lots of Volunteers have already signed up but there are still plenty of opportunities to prepare meals, set up the space for our guests, and provide a warm and welcoming community of friends. If you are interested in being a part of this program, please sign up at the Welcome Table or contact Micah Luce. Last year, we had almost 100 volunteers and all were richly rewarded by the experience.

Our guests would especially appreciate the company of you and your family at dinner one night during our week. Please join us as we extend our hospitality to our guests.

Please volunteer and plan to join one or more dinners during our week.
