Out of Service

Ponder:
How did you choose this church? What qualities are on your church must have list?
Did you ever ask yourself? What can my family offer? While there are important factors when choosing a church family, one of the most important parts of choosing a church home is choosing how your family will add to the life of the church. Church is more than what you take away. Your church experience is also about what you leave. What impression do you leave when you get out of service?

Prayer:
Dear Lord, thank you for leading me to a church home that will allow me to grow in my relationship with you. Thank you for pursuing me even when I leave you behind. Help me to find ways that I can leave what you pour into me with those I meet. Give me a heart and a confidence to do my part to move this church forward.

Participate:
Read Colossians 3:23 with your child. Brainstorm ways in which God is asking you to work for Him in your areas of influence including your church home.
