Young Families Fellowship (YFF)
| Print |
The Young Families Fellowship(YFF) of St.Peter's Mar Thoma Church was started in October of 2004. YFF consists of approximately 14 active families. The meetings are led by our achen Rev.M.S. Daniel, and are held once a month at one of the members home. The monthly meetings begin with a few songs and prayer, followed by discussions on various topics of interest for children and adults.
YFF has been involved in several Charitable activities as a part of the groups desire to serve the Community. Some of the activities YFF has been involved are :
Bear Hugs for the Holidays:(click Here):
With the help of parishoners, YFF (formerly known as Young Adults and Young Couples Fellowship) was able to donate more than 300 bears to the annual "Bear Hugs for the Holidays" programme organized by the "The Record" newspaper. The teddy bears were donated to kids in hospitals around North Jersey.
YFF conducted a shoe drive in which shoes were collected and given to Dr. Daniel Margolin, Podiatrist, to be distributed to those in need.
YFF also conducted a coat drive through donations from parish members and distributed them to the sick and needy through a non profit organization.
With God's grace and guidance from Achen, YFF continues to provide many young families a meaningful fellowship with other families. Please contact the Young Families representative, Mr. John Oommen, for further information.
