This Sunday morning during community worship, we will focus on the topic of service through the eyes of Jesus. When we look at Jesus, how can we better understand how to serve others? As you prepare for gathered worship, please read Deuteronomy 15:1-11; John 13:1-17; and Philippians 2:1-11. Also consider the following reflective questions:
- What are ways that you have practiced community service throughout your life? What are ways that you serve people in your life today?
- How do you feel when you are serving others? Why do you feel this way?
- As you reflect on the scripture passages for this week, what kind of pattern do you notice about service? What words or phrases from these texts especially stand out to you?
May God teach us to be people of love and service to all of our brothers and sisters in our communities and around the world.
