Flowers are buried;
But there are lots of bird songs,
And fantastic tweets.

The Susan Nolen-Hoeksema Memorial Abraham's Tent Outreach Mission
This year we are again hosting this important event, which helps to house the homeless, from March 27th through April 2nd. Abraham's Tent is a cooperative effort between Columbus House and congregations of faith in greater New Haven. These congregations open their facilities to house up to 12 homeless people overnight for one week each during the winter months. We are in need of volunteers to provide breakfast, dinner, social experiences with our guests in the evenings and to stay overnight. Food and monetary donations are always welcome. If you'd like to volunteer, please fill out a volunteer form and return it in the collection plate or to the church office.
Pastor Mary Nelson, South Central Regional Minister of the Connecticut Conference will be our Guest Preacher on Sunday April 2nd, Please join us. During our Second House there will be a presentation about the Silver Lake Camp Program.
