Former Director of Music Stephen Gamboa recommended Fady. “Stephen’s recommendation got Fady an interview with the Staff Parish Relations (SPR) team,” said team leader Linda Orth. “He did the rest on his own.”
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Pantry and Garden:
Our Outreach Ministry is blessed in so many ways. Even when it seems like our pantry supplies are low, somehow we are always able to accommodate the requests for food. That’s because of very regular donations from many in the congregation and partners from outside the church. Just when we had no more peanut butter and jelly, for example, two angels from Teachers Federal Credit Union in Wading River came with several boxes full. Continue reading
After five wonderful years with Stephen Gamboa as Director of Music, the congregation bid him farewell on August 24. Stephen is now at an extremely selective education program “for students who wish to study their craft at the highest level.” Tears of joy for Stephen’s talent, good fortune, and bright future mixed with tears of sadness. Fortunately, Stephen made sure that the church will experience a smooth transition by recommending his very talented friend Fadi Deeb, who we welcomed the following Sunday. All is well in our music ministry. Continue reading

All is well with the Thrift Shop. A plethora of donations continue to appear every week: clothing and a variety of household and other items. Without the donations, the shop would not only lack the fresh inventory that regular clients long for, but soon would have nothing to sell. Thus, the team is grateful for all donations and appreciative of those who think of our shop as a good place to recycle their treasures. Continue reading

Luke wrote about the early church as a fellowship of “believers who were together and had everything in common, who gave to anyone as he had need.” They ate together, prayed together, praised God together “with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:42–47). Continue reading
Thanks to Jacob Morabito and fellow scouts from Troop 221 (Manorville), a new community garden is now in place. Jacob directed about 20 others from his troop on May 24 & 25, as they built and prepared two raised beds, then planted a few different vegetables. Continue reading
A couple of years ago I attended a workshop of Long Island Council of Churches, and learned about a vital ministry to serve the community: a community garden. On Long Island some nonprofit organizations and churches have community gardens and provide fresh vegetables to needy people and to soup kitchens. Dix Hills United Methodist is one of them. I discussed this ministry with a few church members. They were enthusiastic and started organizing it. Then our church member Jacob Morabito offered to build the community garden as his Eagle Scout service project. His project plan was approved by our Board of Trustees in March and by his Scout board in April. Continue reading
