A Day of Service

We had our first ever junior high Day of Service this morning at Red Mountain. I've been teaching a Sunday morning series called "Serving Like Jesus" where we've been discussing the actions and attitudes of a Christ-like servant. About 20 students participated, and it was exciting for me to see who showed up. There was one team of students do outdoor yard work around the church's building, and I sent two other teams to serve at some elderly women's homes in our community. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the students were fast workers; I ran out of jobs for them to do about an hour before parents were supposed to pick them up! Next time we do something like this, I'll remember that they can get the job done quickly! It was an encouraging day overall, and I hope that it's a small step for these students towards serving God with their lives.
