My Life and Participation in the Church

Good Essays
“For I know the plans I have for you declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11 from the bible) Since day one of my life, my faith is what gets me through each day. I centered my graduation project on something I care most about because I was involved with my church since I was born. Through activities like a spaghetti dinner in February, Easter fellowship the Saturday of Easter, vacation bible school during the summer, youth babysitting during Christmas, and Christmas caroling these are just a few things I participate in at my church.

The first thing I used in my graduation project was the annual spaghetti dinner the path youth does in February around valentines. I help do things the day before the actual dinner by setting tables up, getting the gymnasium decorated, help prepare food, make the directional sign for where people should go and park, etc… Then the day of I help set the salad out on the salad tables, finish decorating, wrap silverware in napkins, and serve the people when the dinner starts. After the dinner is done I help teardown and cleanup the gymnasium because after everything is put away and the wet mopping is dry on the floor the youth help set up for the 8:45 service the next morning. This dinner takes a lot of time but in the end it is all worth doing.

Then I go right into helping out with the Easter fellowship the church has for the younger kids every year. Each year I try to help set up but I’m usually at a church service during set-up. The actual day I help by sitting at one of the craft tables and making sure the kids have everything they need to do the craft and explain how to do the craft to them. Also there is an Easter egg...

In the end my year has always been a rewarding year because of all the things I do in my church. I do not ask for recognition on the extra things I do besides the things I mention but sometimes something would be said during the service’s praises. I would be blessed because I took time to do everything I do because I want to let the people know I like doing the things the church has to offer that is why I volunteer my time and talents. Through activities like a spaghetti dinner in February, Easter fellowship the Saturday of Easter, vacation bible school during the summer, youth babysitting during Christmas, and Christmas caroling these are just a few things I participate in at my church. This is why I chose to center my graduation project around my church life because i am so involved in the church I go to.
