Past Events

First Annual Alumni Weekend 2012

Over Columbus Day weekend, 32 participants attended the FOCUS Alumni Retreat filled with fun, fellowship and worship. Woody Bowman, a member of the FOCUS staff and speaker for the weekend, led large and small group discussions on the Church and its characteristics. Everyone took part in traditional FOCUS games, Island walks and sailing as well as time spent getting reacquainted on the porch of the Lodge each evening. A highlight for all was the preparation of care packages for FOCUS first-year college students who attended Pre-college Weekend last summer. Twenty-one packages were prepared which included treats, notes from alumni, FOCUS program information on Winter House Parties and scripture.

Fishers Island Golf Tournament 2012

We are happy to report that on September 17th, 2012, FOCUS held its first ministry-wide golf tournament at the Fishers Island Club in New York. For the 76 golfers who turned out to play, the beautiful sunny day provided a perfect setting for conversations about the impact of FOCUS ministry on independent school students. This tournament successfully widened and deepened FOCUS relationships and fellowship.
