Would you like to help the hungry by visiting a local farm? Are you free for an hour on one Tuesday afternoon this summer? We need drivers to pick up food at Massaro Farm in Woodbridge and bring it to the food pantry in New Haven between 2:30 and 5pm each Tuesday over the summer. It’s a simple and easy task and delivers fresh food to the hungry in our community. Driving directions and a sign up sheet are on the Welcome Table. Many dates are available!
Ushers and Friendship Hour Hosts needed for many upcoming Sundays! Please lend a hand to welcome all into our worship service or for fellowship afterwards.
The duties are easy and you can check with Martha Smith for ushering, Jennifer Ballew for Friendship Hour or the Welcome Table hosts.
Columbus House volunteers needed:
The Columbus House sign-up sheet for the second half of 2016 is now on the Welcome Table awaiting your participation. Volunteer to help provide our monthly dinner at the homeless shelter!
It only takes a couple hours on the first Saturday of each month to provide a warm welcome and meal for the people staying at the shelter. A main meal plus salad and dessert is sufficient. Invite your friends (church or otherwise) to join you.
Any questions, contact Pat Wales. Many thanks for supporting this important mission cause.
Would you like to give flowers in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone special or a special event in your life?
The Worship Committee invites you to support the Flower Fund. A sign up sheet will be found in the Miller Gathering Hall. Please choose a “first Sunday of the month” and note how you would like the note to be listed in the bulletin. Then send along a check for $50 to the church to help offset the costs.
Please note that during the months when gardens are full of flowers, we would also welcome your own floral arrangement on any other Sunday of the month. … Continue
CCA’s Food Pantry Needs Food!
Canned and dry beans, macaroni and cheese, soups, tuna, peanut butter and jelly are among the items needed.
We collect food items in the wheelbarrow outside the sanctuary each week and deliver it to CCA at the end of each month.
You may also drop food off at the CCA office at 168 Davenport Avenue, New Haven, which is open between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday for donations.
This food pantry served over 2000 households in 2014. With your contributions, we can serve even more in the coming year.
