Back in my home church where I was involved in the youth ministry, people would prepare in weeks in advance to decorate the church, make baskets full of presents with Easter-related items, and set up various activities for the kids. Activities were an entertaining way for kids to learn about Christianity and Easter. I cannot speak much for my church 's adult congregation, however, the youth ministry focused on the concept of 'giving back to community ' on Christmas. We would receive donations of food and necessities to give back to the those in need.

When people hear Thanksgiving the first thought that comes to mind is family and friends gathering around turkey stuffing, cranberry sauce, potato pies, cakes, and candid yams. For some Thanksgiving has become a time to shop, making plans to travel, and watch football games.

Although, thanks should be given to God everyday not just on holiday or limited to just one day out the year.
Keep Christ in Christmas The way my family keeps Christ in Christmas is by having traditions.

I have had the unforgettable opportunity to personally raise $1,400 for kids to go to summer camp, whose families could not afford it otherwise. I have worked at food drives, homeless shelters, and kid’s programs in my town, in hopes to make someone’s day a little bit better and ultimately make my community stronger. These experiences shaped who I am today. While I cherish the experience I had making a difference in my own town, I am ready to grow and leave a positive impact somewhere else in the country. I want to go on an alternative break trip to spread my knowledge, experience, and positivity with other members of my team, and the people, land, and environment that we encounter throughout the trip.

These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school.

It makes my family and I feel really good about our decision to help someone in need. Every Christmas my church participates in a program called “Operation Christmas Child”, which delivers shoeboxes full of gifts to many children around the world. Many of the congregation choose whether to buy for a girl or boy, or both, and what age group he, she, or they are in. Last year, my parents and I bought for both a boy and a girl, filling shoeboxes full of toys, school supplies, and other items. It is amazing to watch videos of children receiving the boxes in the past years and to observe how excited they get.
Animals at the Vanderburgh Humane Society got involved in the Halloween spirit Tuesday. Staff at the VHS not only served candy for the kids but provided appropriate treats for their four legged friends.
