SOS with Haven of Rest: Keep the Compassion Coming!

Thanks to the CCC members and friends who have responded so well to last week's post introducing our March SOS collaboration with Haven of Rest. Now, let's build on that initial momentum!

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

How do the poor and homeless see God’s compassion today?

In the prayers, generosity and acts of service of God’s people. Just as God is faithful, HIs people are called to new compassions every morning.

What can I do?

It’s simple. Keep the compassion coming by joining or continuing your support for CCC’s Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS). In March, our SOS partner is Haven of Rest.

What’s happening so far?

Friends and members of CCC are stepping up by volunteering to serve at Haven, praying and donating food items.

 The SOS container at the CCC Hudson campus is in the hallway between the atrium and the gym.
