2019 Theme: SELFLESS
2019 Theme Verse:
Mark 12:45, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Jesus lived the ultimate life of service. The Bible makes clear that Jesus experienced temptation, grief, rejection, and even mockery while on earth; however, He continued forward in humble service. As Jesus humbled himself in obedience to His Heavenly Father, He lived a life of service that every believer is called to follow. This year, our church will focus on our core value of Selfless Service.
We will be challenged to take our service to the next level in all the spheres of our life. Whether it’s serving a difficult co-worker at our job or patiently serving a challenging child, we are called to be selfless. Selfishness is often the easier and more traveled road but selflessness is the better choice.
God, use our efforts to serve like You this year and may we live lives less focused on self. May we be a community willing to get uncomfortable as you direct us to do so.
