FAMILY PLUS High School - August 18

Hello HS Parents!

Last night we completed the second week of our series "If Necessary Use Words." In this study we are focusing on how God can use us as servants and our responsibility to play this role in the lives of people we interact with daily. It can be pretty humbling to think about well you execute this critical command from Jesus.

This coming Sunday we will narrow our focus even more to look at the people God has called us to serve. Our Scripture reference will be Acts 9:36-43, Matthew 25:31-40, and Matthew 10:42. A great way to prepare your student for this Sunday AND to keep this idea fresh in his/her mind after Sunday is to look for opportunities to serve someone WITH your student. This doesn't mean you have to hunt down a mission opportunity in Zimbabwe with your student; rather, this means seizing every chance you can to model servanthood to your student in your everyday life.

In other words, find tangible ways that you can do something for someone else while you are going through your regular routine. Just being intentional about this will open a world of opportunity for you to give something back to others. But the greatest reward will come from what your students see in you as you choose to put the needs of others above your own. There is PLENTY of opportunity to go around out there...make the MOST of it for HIS glory.

Don't forget that our Family Plus parent class begins this Sunday at 9:15 PM in the Fellowship Hall. If you are looking for a Sunday Morning CONNECT opportunity - I'd love for you to check out this class for parents.
