LEARNING EXPERIENCE: SERVICE
The purpose of the Service Experience is:
to be like Jesus in putting others before ourselves;
to be a blessing to others and show our love in tangible ways.
Your small group leader(s) will have worked with our Outreach Leader, to arrange your service site. Before, during, and after the Service Experience, remember to pray, asking God to be present with you, blessing others through you, and opening your eyes to things God wants you to see and understand.
Remember that service is not a one-off — or even once-a-month — activity, but rather a posture and a way of living like Jesus. The people we are serving are not our charity projects but ones in whom the image of God dwells and from whom we might learn things about God we otherwise might not.
If you have any questions, contact your small group leader(s).
