Serving with Events

December 2nd, 2013

Today’s post was provided by Ramsey McRory ’15, who serves on Delta Alpha Epsilon and contributes regularly to the Chapter Leadership Blog. Ramsey is a junior Nursing major from Haymarket, Virginia.

For many of us, the Christmas season provides a time to connect with the people we love, as well as give to those who can’t share the same heart-warming festivities we can. So how can Cedarville alumni enjoy their friendships and family, while also helping others?  A service-themed alumni event!  Consider making the Christmas spirit last all year by planning a chapter event that revolves around serving together.

For example, the students on DAE, Cedarville’s alumni service organization, are packing items this year for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Last month, the South Central Pennsylvania alumni chapter hosted a service event at GAiN to pack aid boxes for shipment overseas! Just as Cedarville students prioritize ministry involvement during their time at Cedarville, our alumni also have that desire to serve their communities. So pick an organization or family to sponsor, grab your alum friends, and spread the love of Christ this Christmas season… and all year-round!

Let us know about the ways you have chosen to enjoy giving this year! If you have ideas for service-themed events in your region, we’d love to hear about them.
