Though lifelong Mets fans, my parents had never been to Citifield. There was always conflict, a health concern, something to keep them from actually going to the ballpark … until last Saturday. Fellow teacher Mrs. Troiano was not able to go to the Smithtown Christian School Mets Day and offered her 4 tickets me, hoping my parents would go. She even spoke with them on the phone, telling them how much she wanted them to go! With Mrs. Troiano’s generosity, my husband and I enjoyed the day with my parents (supporters of Smithtown Christian School since 1987), and also my daughter, Alexandra (McCourt, SCS class of 2000) Erickson and her daughter Willow. Finally getting my parents to Citi Field was a dream come true and having their daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter share the experience with them was beyond joyful! The Mets may have lost but the memories made by 4 generations of Mets fans was priceless LetsGoMets!
On April 28th and 29th, New York Apologetics will be hosting the D2D Apologetics Conference at Smithtown Christian School. Friday night will consist of a two hour question-and-answer session geared toward answering the the tough questions that arise for our youth.
Saturday will consist of various apologetics presentations on several key topics for which Christians should have answers. The presentations will include evidences for the resurrection, the reliability of the Bible, and the existence of God.
Additionally, New York Apologetics will be giving away a $2,500 scholarship to one parent of a SCS student just for attending.
This is a tremendous opportunity to learn the reasons we have for the Christian faith and to be able to answer tough questions from our kids. Our children are facing a society hostile to Christianity. It is our obligation to train them up in the way they should go. This conference is designed to do just that.
Please join us as we seek to give an answer for the hope that lies within us.
