We use the word service a lot but what does it mean in the context of following Jesus and why is it important?Serving is essential to following Jesus. Jesus said He came to serve and He set an example of service for His followers to emulate. We should be about the things that Jesus was about – and Jesus was about service.Why is serving so important? For many reasons. But let’s focus on one. Just imagine how our reputation would improve with those who don’t know Jesus yet if we all followed His example of service.On the weekend of August 8-10 we are all going to have an opportunity to serve!Our hope is that each of us will join together with our small groups, classes, and/or families and serve together. Be led by the Spirit! Use your imagination! The end result? We hope by 6 pm on August 10 we hope to have given 7500 hours of service to our friends and neighbors! Then we’ll celebrate together with dinner on the West Plaza, near the parking lot. If you have any questions please contact me at [email protected] or (626) 817-4810.Are you up for the challenge?
