“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His Righteousness”
Our Young Peoples Society is a fellowship of high school and college age students who meet together September thru May after the evening worship service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. This year 2012/2013 we are meeting with 15 – 20 young people and are studying the the book of Ecclesiastes.
Some activities during the year include a church picnic attended by the congregation in early October, distribution of winter coats at a local mission in early November, as well as other recreational events planned during the year that promote unity and friendship.
The Young People organize 2 fundraisers during the year. In November there is an evening of thanksgiving with dessert and song and in March a Ziti Dinner is held to offset the cost of Young Peoples weekend. Young Peoples Weekend is held the 3rd weekend in May and is the concluding event of our year. It is a highly anticipated event as 60 -80 young people from throughout the federation and other local churches. We gather together for a weekend of fellowship with one another, recreational activities which have included scavenger hunts in New York City or rafting down the Delaware River; and above all, worship and devotion to the Lord. Christian friendships are forged and nourished and we pray a foundation is established whereby the mediation of David in Ps.119:63 is settled “I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and them that keep thy precepts”.
