Columbus House

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.

Learn more about volunteering at Columbus House.

Any questions, contact Pat Wales.  Many thanks for supporting this important mission cause.

Sanctuary Flowers

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 Food Donations

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.
