With students always on the go, our PF group gathers at least once a week for a time of fun and fellowship. Weekly events help to build community, foster healthy friendships and to allow time together as a group.
Activities might include ice skating, gym night, trips to NYC, movie nights, game nights, scavenger hunts, nights out to dinner, trips to Jones Beach, picnics, day hikes, and much, much more. In addition, monthly newsletters go out to our students reminding them of upcoming events and activities. If you are interested in participating in any of our activities or being involved in our Sunday morning Sunday school, please contact Lori Burgess at: firstname.lastname@example.org or at (516) 627-4911 x 106. Everyone is welcome!
Once a year our PF group ventures to the far reaches of the US on our annual Mission Trip. Mission trips have included locations such as Knoxville, TN, Boston, MA, Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Birmingham, AL and Hartford, CT. For one week, we partner with non-profit organizations, service projects and community outreach opportunities in various locations.
Our mission experiences include; hurricane relief, food pantries, soup kitchens, senior citizen homes, low income families, community centers, rural back yard Bible clubs, and homeless shelters. Mission trips encourage students to live out their faith in action through service.
Our confirmation program, which students usually enter in the 8th grade, helps students to place together the story of faith. During confirmation, we journey through the Bible and the historical components of faith for a better understanding of the Christian faith.
Confirmation seeks to nurture and educate a young person in the Christian faith so that she or he might confess faith in and commitment to following God's way as revealed in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. For those who were baptized as children, Confirmation fulfills parental vows taken on their behalf. For those not baptized, Confirmation offers the opportunity to confess personal faith in Christ and undergo Baptism before Confirmation Sunday.
