Each year children of DRCC are encouraged to Trick or Treat for UNICEF as they undertake their Halloween routine. Though Halloween is not a Christian holiday, we feel that putting a Christian emphasis on one of childhood's favorite days, we can help form a suitable view of this celebration. On the last Sunday in October, the youth are invited to dress in their costumes. The classes parade through the Sanctuary, listen to a UNICEF program and then onto a celebration to include Halloween goodies, games and crafts, as well as receive their UNICEF boxes.
UNICEF, The United Nations Children's Fund is a United Nations Program headquartered in New York City. UNICEF provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. Each fall on the Sunday before Halloween, DRCC's Sunday School children celebrate Halloween receive their UNICEF donation boxes.
