When I was in girl club at church called “Calvinettes,” we exchanged gifts at Christmas time. For me it was a joyful event. When I looked through my cupboards at home, I packed up all the canned food that I had. I gave to the bus driver for the food bank. I felt pretty good knowing that other people could have use for it when I don’t.
Almost every Sunday, I put money in the collection plate for ongoing ministries, and for our local elementary Christian school. My children had gone there, and the church I attend had helped me pay for their education there. Both my kids liked it, and the classes were pretty small there. Some years the enrollment of that school was pretty because of a lot of the parents could not afford to send their children there.
Not have I gave money to the church I also gave a bit of myself my helping out in the kitchen by washing and drying dishes. I also sang in the choir during the Christmas and Easter Season. It felt good to be facing the congregation as we sang.
I also brought some baked goods such as cookies to the church for our annual Christmas craft and bake sale. One year I helped out at the craft by collecting for customers who bought stuff.
