While being an intern at Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), I have had hands on experience writing press releases, being able to pitch a story, create images on Canva to be used on the Instagram page, and being a part of meetings that discuss detailed images of the Spring/Summer issue of the Mt. Spirit Magazine. (CAP) has shown me that even little detail matters even if it means changing the words “poor people” to “people in need” makes a big differences when describing the region of Appalachia. I think that the biggest event that resonates with me the most is that (CAP) helps people in need by having repairs done to their home, having a hunger walk, accepting kids into their week long summer program, having a food pantry and providing clothing.
During the past few years, I have had many volunteer and leadership opportunities both in and outside of school. Truth be told, I’ve never been the most outgoing person, but many of these opportunities have helped me to step outside my comfort zone, and take leadership various situations. Through my volunteering experiences, I’ve learned many lessons. I believe that going to Archbishop MacDonald high school will continue to push me outside my comfort zone and become a great leader in my community. One of the first times that I volunteered was for a summer camp at my church.
I sat and thought about that all through church and was in awe of my father’s love for God. A love that parents have passed onto their children for generations in my family. Throughout the years growing up since that day I went to various youth groups, masses, and retreats but it wasn’t until my church sent me on a mission trip that I really understood what the love of God was. It was the Summer of my Freshman year in highschool and I was all packed and ready to make the long drive to
My family is religious, and I intend to carry the tradition to going to Church every Sunday and every Holy Day of Obligation, but there is more beyond going to Church. As children of God, we are given a purpose to serve for and protect His creation. God created this beautiful world, and it is our job to maintain it and those who inhabit it. We are sent to spread the word of God, and to protect the Church and the Catholic faith. I hoped that I could carry out my mission by going
I answered him back saying I will contact you over the phone after getting the permission from my mother. I contacted him in the morning and I told him I agree, but I do not want to be late. Husband: I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, attending the service at her church every Sunday although, it was not my church, simply because I am orthodox and she is Evangelical. Therapist: They were laughing while they were telling me the story of the second question. The wife added he did not know that I knew that this is not his church from the beginning and he is Orthodox.
16.Many of the faculty members were in the service so there were many substitutes at Exeter. 17.Boys would take summer classes so they could graduate sooner. 18.The Academy attempted to keep the normal program at the school so there was still chapel every morning and church on Sundays. 19.The title of the book is based off the boys being separated and that they will eventually find peace
Lebanon United Methodist Church Located in the small, rural town of Neeses, South Carolina, is the quaint little building known as Lebanon United by the members of the church. Consisting mostly of elderly couples, much like my personal church, this church was not too farfetched for me to enjoy. A lot of families fill up the pews on Sunday mornings’; one of those families being my son’s girlfriends. At least I know that my future in-laws are church going! I can personally say that I had never been to any church service other than my own and when my son invited me to join him and the family for service one Sunday, I was of course hesitant.
I chose the 9:45 worship service because it was open to all age groups and the younger people attended. The sermon began with rock and roll type music, the ushers would collect money, the pastor talked about a story in the bible, and we closed with a prayer. There was a college-age group that met from 11:00 to 12:00 after the 9:45 worship service. I decided to give the group a try because I wanted to make some friends there. I was not sure what to expect or if they would accept me into their group.
Transitioning from middle school band to high school band was a major jump because of all the time involved, but it was such a great transition. Since my freshman year I have always done all I can to be my absolute best in this program. I never slacked off on practice unless I had another event I had to attend. Every summer we have band camp that consists of 8 hours a day working our hardest to get the season started. Once school starts the color guard had three hour practices three times a week, last year it was only two, and now we only have practice one day a week because of the effort we all put in at band camp this year.
After a few weeks of trying to suppress this feeling of emptiness I had gained from not going to church, I decided that it was unavoidable; I still wanted to be a part of the church, despite the fact that my family did not. The thought of being different from the rest of my family scared me, but eventually, I gathered enough courage to ask my parents to take me to church again. At first, they snickered like hyenas and teased me, but once they saw the stern look on my face, their howling ceased and they agreed. Choosing to continue going to church despite being the only one in my family has marked my transition from childhood to adulthood. Because of one decision, I was completely changed.
In order to be confirmed at my church there is a required amount of service hours. Church leaders plan two or three Wednesday night service events so that we could get some of the hours done. It is a nice way to get out of the church to go and help people in the community. Service is done all voluntarily so that no one feels forced to go out and do it. One place in particular that I love going back to is Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).
After emigrating, due to busy schedule of my parents, Worship on Sunday, became the only Worship in my life. I was born into a Christian family. Throughout the years, I’ve heard many sermons and attended various bible studies. Also, I received the privilege to enhance my knowledge at the seminary. Out of them all, the Gospel that I still remember profoundly to this
I have always talked about my different perspectives and thoughts on college. Both of my parents have not been to college and I want to show them that it is possible and achievable to get the degrees that you desire. Any goals that you make for yourself can be achieved if you set your heart to it. I love to set goals for myself, it makes me push myself harder and go above and beyond. The goals that I hope to accomplish in the next six months is completing a season of water polo, be an officer of the FCA club, be on the swim team, and grow further on my praise and worship team at my church.
