what is so important about community service
What is so important about community service?
  • One of the most rewarding aspects of community service is being able to help out your community.
  • By participating in community service you have a chance to meet other people.
  • Volunteering is very rewarding and everyone should volunteer at least once.
bethany presbyterian church
Bethany Presbyterian Church
  • I chose to do my community service for my church, Bethany Presbyterian.
  • There was a work day on the weekend of the 8th which I was unable to attend, so I went and worked some over the Easter Weekend to help clean up the grounds for Easter Sunday.
  • I also helped build pieces to a set for a play the youth is putting on as well as help with the annual Easter egg hunt.
  • Lastly I took part in a talent show our church held to raise money for the youth to go on summer conferences.
the talent show
The Talent Show
  • The Youth group has been going on summer conferences each summer for about 7 years now; and the church always holds fundraisers to help the youth out with paying for the trip.
  • One of the ways in which the church raises money is to hold a talent show and the people who come to watch donate money afterwards.
  • My brother, one of our friends, and me played a medley of three classic rock songs consisting of Let It Be, American Woman, and Free Bird.
  • My Friend played piano, my brother was on guitar and I played the drums.
  • There were 12 acts in all and I think the talent show raise around 400 dollars.
the easter egg hunt
The Easter Egg Hunt
  • Every year since I can remember my church has held an Easter Egg hunt the Saturday before Easter for kids ages 1-10.
  • I got to the church in the morning before all the kids and helped hide all the eggs.
  • Also if any kids needed help I was there to help them and point out eggs that some of the kids might have missed.
set for the church play
Set for the Church Play
  • For the past two years the youth group has put on a play for the Church members to raise money for the summer conferences they go on.
  • This year the scene is set in Paris and they needed to have these Eiffel Towers made for the tables for which the people will be sitting.
  • There were nine towers I had to make and; though they were small they were quite difficult to put together.
  • Each tower took about 30 minutes.
cleaning up the grounds
Cleaning up the grounds
  • The first project I had for cleaning up the grounds around the church was to clean out and fix a birdbath fountain monument that was placed in memory of one of our members.
  • The pump in the birdbath fountain quit working and so the water was just at a stand still and the water had gotten really nasty and algae had covered the fountain completely.
  • It has not been taken care of in a while and so I volunteered to clean it up and try and fix the pump.
  • I used Clorox and brushes to clean the algae and took and the pump which my dad and I fixed, and then filled the bath back up with water and turned on the pump and its nice and clean now.

  • The next thing I did to help clean up the grounds was to walk around and pick up any trash that was around.
  • There was not too much trash to pick up but there was some spread out over the Church property.

Cleaning up the grounds (Continued)
  • The last grounds work I did was to spread around hay.
  • There are a lot of bare spots around the church and we had some hay brought to the church which I spread out over the bare spots.
  • This was the hardest and longest project that I had to do.
  • Though it was hard, once I was done it looked very good.

Community Service
  • The church was very appreciative for all of the work that I did: cleaning the birdbath, picking up trash, and spreading hay.
  • The youth was also appreciative of the Eiffel Towers I built for the set.
  • Everyone had fun at the talent show and really enjoyed our music.
