Our church family is invited to donate clothing appropriate to teens including new underwear, socks, hats, scarves, coats, toiletries, feminine products, diapers and baby wipes to benefit the Youth Con-tinuum in New Haven. Youth Continuum is the only resource of its kind for teens in CT.

All the kids up to 3rd grade will be rehearsing once again with Miss Liz! For 10 minutes directly after the Children’s Moment each Sunday, the children will be brought downstairs to the church basement to learn fun music and even play a few musical games. They sing in church about twice a month.
