F&F Youth Update - Puerto Rico, Jersey Cares and Hoboken Shelter Food Collection - by Tim Cheux
Recently the Free & Fit Youth project has been involved in a number of outreach and missional activities including the Christmas Live Nativity in Harrington Park.

Over the past three months theFree & Fit youth leaders and members have met together twice a month to study Gods word. Thanks to your generous support we have been able to add mission based events including a trip to Puerto Rico with the the Presbyterian Disaster Alliance, Presbyterian Church in Norwood and Free & Fit New York City.

As part of the trip to Puerto Rico Liza and Tim went travelling, with Youth Member Lacy Bibb, to redecorate and support a volunteer aid project in the residential area of San Jose, Puerto Rico. Over a long weekend, as part of a full week effort, we repainted and redecorated parts of the Churches main building and multi-site community buildings. One building will be used as a local free laundromat and the other building will be an open accommodation centre with renewable energy.
We also collected food for the Homeless Shelter in Hoboken and Coats for the New Jersey Cares winter collection for the homeless. As part of our project Tim dropped off the coats at Libery State Park and the food at the Hoboken Homeless Shelter.

Finally, throughout October, November and December the youth group met to study the Bible Project and learn more about the word of God. In the New Year we plan on launching a brand new Worshipping Community with Movie based events, Prayer Gatherings and Sunday Alpha Sessions.
