You can’t blame middle school students for not being excited about serving others. Giving up free time to participate in a service project isn’t always appealing. Oftentimes, thinking of others first may mean missing out on something else they want to do. Serving others can be downright boring. So, why ask them to do it? We believe service can transform both the person being served and the person serving. Through serving, our students may develop a better understanding of God’s mercy, compassion for humanity, and a deeper appreciation for people living in different circumstances than their own. For the next few weeks, the whole church is focusing on what it means to be rich.
Week 1 Bottom Line: You are designed to serve.
