Our church members are involved in programs that are based upon the Fourth Day movement, especially Tres Dias (Three Days). Other such programs include Cursillo and Walk to Emaus. These are long weekends designed to develop leadership in the church through a series of talks and table conversation and interaction – and lots of fun, laughter and tears, food and music! These are often life-changing moments in the lives of those who attend.
Vida Nueva is a similar weekend for young people, although usually shorter by a day. Although the program is a little different (because teens are different from adults!), the purpose is the same: to bring the life of Christ to individuals in such a way that they are motivated to serve him with joy and strength.
Kairos ministers to those who are incarcerated and Kairos Outside to those (usually women) who have loved ones inside jail and prison. The Kairos and Kairos Outside programs are also modeled after the Tres Dias weekend, although the circumstances of incarceration call for different formats – particularly inside the correctional facilities.
Nursing Home/Retirement Center Ministries
Members of the church go to the Hudson Valley Rehabilitation Center in Highland, New York for a worship service on Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. We work with three other churches to make sure there is a service each week.
