Small groups are the best way to create strong relationships and grow closer to Christ. Why not consider coming to a group. There is no commitment and I promise you that you will be welcomed warmly!
A friend introduced me to ‘I am second’ yesterday. It’s a great site where famous and not so famous people share their testimonies. That is how they came to follow Jesus. So ‘I am second’ really means, ‘God is first!’
I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video here. I’m sorry. I will fix it, if I can this weekend. The Josh Hamilton video is well worth watching!
Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
We are establishing small groups for the new year. Small groups are the essence of this ministry and they are what allows us to ‘do life together’. The setting might be different but we always spend some time in fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
Interested? Well, let us know by adding a comment to this post!

Great weekend everyone! We had our largest group ever, 16 people. One member of our group, Curtis, was baptized in the lake! We had a great time getting to know each other. It’s great to have good Christian friends. For those that couldn’t join us – we missed you!
Just posted some pictures on our facebook group. http://www.facebook.com/groups/43848377913/ Hope you enjoy. Here are just a few:
Finally, in the spirit of the weekend, here are 10 things I learned:
(1) Alhassan can play a mean game of frisbee golf. After one of my throws he said “you aren’t very athletic are you?” Thank brother!
(2) A letter in Vinny Coniglio’s last name is silent. Do you know which one? Hint: It’s not the ‘C’
(3) John snores
(4) If you take a long time to drink your milkshake … make sure no one is around to continue to bring it up all weekend.
(5) Alhassan once shaved his head and John would for a $1000, any takers?
(6) Robert can’t drive a nail while wearing a blindfold, sunglasses and a funny hat
(7) Although it may have felt like it, we didn’t set a world record for the longest time between sinking a ball (other than the cue ball) in billards.
(8) Yves is fearless – zip line, swing, rope course …. bring it on!
(9) When you get baptized in Lake Champion, the Holy Spirit turns your potbelly into a six pack (Curtis)!
(10) Yes Vinny, the water fountain works!
Come join us for one of our small groups this week. Either Thursday evening or Saturday morning. Send a note to learn more.

Men’s Fellowship: Walk and Talk
This Saturday, June 5, 7:30 am
Rockwood Park (7:30 am) and Eldorado West, Tarrytown (9 am)
Come for a stroll by the Hudson and through the woods! Afterwards, meet for breakfast at the diner. Or come just to walk, or just to breakfast!
Directions: Rockwood Park is near Phelps Hospital. Take 117 west from Pleasantville or from its intersection with 9A or Taconic State Parkway north. After about 2 miles from 9A, you will see the exit for route 9. Do not take this exit, but stay left and begin to slow down. You will soon come to a crossroads, with Phelps Hospital on your left. Go straight through the crossroad, and park in the small parking lot immediately on your left.
Eldorado West is a diner on route 9, near the entrance ramp for I87 south. From Rockwood Park, we return east on 117, and immediately take 9 south all the way through Tarrytown. Then look for the diner on the left, after the ramp for I87 north and the Tappanzee Bridge.
Hope to see you there!
Eric Metaxas’ book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a very enjoyable read and very relevant today. Besides it has got rave reviews from the Wall Street Journal, Fox News and many others.
