Starting in 2008, CPC in the Hill and CPC New Haven (on Whitney Ave.) have been partnering together to help make Christmas possible for many financially struggling families, in a gracious and dignified way. Therefore, with the helpful donation of gifts from many within our churches, the congregation in the Hill has been able to host a one-day Store with merchandise at 'dramatically' reduced prices. This enables families to be able to afford a few presents for their loved ones, while at the same time maintaining their dignity by allowing them to purchase them with their own money, instead of with a handout.
This outreach has been tremendously helpful in allowing us to get into the lives of families in the Hill. In fact, many of our current church attendees are the result of first connecting with them at this event. Please join us in praying for the various families we will meet through this event and that it would provide various gospel proclamations in the future.
