On Thursday Oct. 31, Georgetown Christian Church held their annual Fall Festival. This event allowed children and their parents to walk around the church while playing games, collecting candy, socializing and enjoying the free food. A few FC students who are in the church’s youth group took time out of their Halloween to help their community with such festivities.
Freshman John Reas shared his opinion on what he believes helping does for his community.
“It means a lot to the kids and helps the parents out. It also gives teens a chance to do something with them.”
One of the major ways they can help is leading a game that children can play.
“It means a lot to the kids. When you’re a kid, everything is magical,” said junior Sam Stermer.
Stermer also shared that he believes children look up to teenagers, which makes the experience even more enjoyable for them.
Freshman Kaelyn Gibson shared that it doesn’t just affect the children, but also the teens who participate.
“I just wanted to do it because it makes me feel good. Like, I’m really doing something.”
