Notes from MYF


Hi Everyone,

  

MYF had a great month. We started out April with our annual Sunrise Service at Centerport Beach, followed by breakfast back at the church. We had a wonderful morning. Thank you to our president, Morgan Modica for a beautiful sermon, the Membership Team for setting up and providing bagels, Barbara Wohleking for providing the flowers for our cross, and for everyone who attended.

We have begun planning for our annual retreat that will take place from Friday, May 4th to Sunday, May 6th, 2018. It is a great weekend for the youth and adult leaders to get to know each other and themselves better at Camp Quinipet on Shelter Island.

Our Mother’s Day Breakfast will be taking place on May 13th from 8:30-9:30 AM before service. We welcome all to come and bring their family for a wonderful meal prepared by the youth!!

THANK YOU!


I would like to thank everyone who helped to make my bake sale for Nicaragua a success! The congregation’s generous support allowed me to meet my fundraising goal. I could not have imagined one bake sale alone allowing me to raise the funds required for a house build. I not only met my goal, but exceeded it, allowing me to donate the additional funds to World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. 

With Gratitude, Gabby Ruffini

 

   


 

HOW THE FUNDS OUR YOUTH GROUP RAISES ACTUALLY FIGHT HUNGER


Over more than six decades we’ve learned that the best way to fight hunger is to give families the tools they need to put food on their own tables year round. Our goal for children and families is food security. That means they can be confident about where their next meal is coming from — and that they get enough nutritious food to live an active, healthy life. Specifically, this means that the funds you donate help World Vision:


¨ Teach parents improved farming techniques.

¨ Equip families to grow healthier, more abundant

crops and livestock.

¨ Provide access to clean water for nutritious

harvests.

¨ Run malnutrition centers when there’s a food

crisis.

¨ Distribute emergency food supplies when

there’s a disaster.
