Molokai Mission Trip – April 6-12, 2015
Each spring break, a group of high school students and adult chaperones travel to Molokai, Hawaii for Laguna Presbyterian Church’s annual Molokai Mission Trip. The islanders are some of the poorest people in the nation.
The trip combines work projects, outings around the island, and nightly Bible study to create an unforgettable experience for the students. Through hard work and play, the students return home with an understanding of Molokai’s culture, a greater appreciation for their home communities, newly formed friendships with their peers, and a desire to share Christ’s love with others. Prior year’s projects have included building a wheelchair ramp for a Molokai resident, painting a women’s shelter, helping with renovation of the Molokai Baptist Church, and transplanting palm trees for the Molokai Agricultural Society.
One student said of his trip,
“I never believed doing manual labor could make such a big difference in my life and bring me so close to people I’ve never met.”
Another student said of her trip,
“It’s incredible how when you help people, they are actually
helping you. I grew up a lot this trip.”
Dr. Steve Sweet, Senior Associate Pastor and Youth Pastor at Laguna Presbyterian Church, plans and oversees each Molokai mission trip with the goal of deepening the students’ faith, while giving them opportunities to share Christ’s love with others.
Forest Home Christian Camp
Our Logos/high school and Caravan/middle school groups travel to Forest Home for one week every summer to grow in their relationships with God, fellowship with one another, participate in fun camp activities with a wonderful staff, and enjoy time in the mountains.
Students participate in a variety of fun activities and deepen their relationship with God through worship, speakers, simulations, and small group activities. They share meals together, participate in friendly competitions, and enjoy free time in the afternoon where they can enjoy the lake or pool, hike, play miniature golf, try out the climbing wall or zip line, fish, get creative at the craft cabin, or just hang out with friends at the snack bar.
Middle school students stay at Creekside and high school students stay at Lakeview, and each age group participates in separate programs. During free time, students from Creekside, Lakeview, and the family camp may participate in all the activities Forest Home offers while spending time together. For more information, go to Forest Home’s website.
Youth Confirmation Class
Confirmation classes are designed to teach youth the foundations of faith, while guiding them into the membership of Laguna Presbyterian Church. The class is open to 9th – 12th grade students. Classes are held on Sundays in the Youth Center, with the first class starting the second Sunday of September from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. The following six Sunday classes are held from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. The seven-week course is concluded with a confirmation dessert with church elders and pastors, and a Confirmation Sunday worship service. Only one excused absence is allowed from the classes (except due to illness). The confirmation classes are held every other year.
High School Confirmation Class for 2014 will be held from Sunday, September 14 – October 19, and students will be confirmed at the 10 a.m. worship service on Sunday, October 26, 2014.
