Saturday, January 20, Riverside Christian will be hosting its first Winter Semi-formal for the high school. The Let It Snow Winter Event has been entirely student-organized from start to finish. The planning committee is compiled of 9-12th grade volunteers who have dedicated their time, ideas, talents, and creativity to put together an extravagant night.

The birth of this event reiterates the school year’s theme—Running Together. The committee, made up of extremely busy and invested individuals, has sacrificed their time before school, after classes, lunch periods, and weekends to meet and discuss new ways to shape the event. Separated into certain areas of interest—food, decorations, activities, and promotion—the individual sub-committees then spend further time working out the fine details to pull off the event.

The head of the planning committee, Victoria Cole, reflects:
“I have seen students seize the opportunities before them and run with their ideas that amount to great successes. It is amazing to see how planning one event can unlock the potential and leadership qualities in so many students, as well as expose people’s gifts and talents into their proper channels. 

“I believe it is important that not only the student body and Riverside family recognize the leadership that is being demonstrated through this Winter Event, but that the members of the committee themselves will understand how much of an impact and importance they are.”

Although this is seemingly just the organization of a fun evening for the secondary students, it is a prime example of how each and every individual is crucial to success—crucial to the kingdom; together we are able to function as the Body of Christ, advancing His kingdom. 

Without one member, we cease to function, therefore everyone at Riverside Christian is crucial to the kingdom; the winter event brings to light this reality.

For those that plan on attending the Let It Snow Winter Semi-Formal, you will be able to witness and partake of the fruits of many talented students’ hard work. For those of you that will not be in attendance, you are truly missing out on a wonderful new experience.

“There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body. It is the same with Christ. We were all baptized by one Holy Spirit. And so we are formed into one body. It didn’t matter whether we were Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free people. We were all given the same Spirit to drink. So the body is not made up of just one part. It has many parts. You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it.”

1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 27
