All over the world kids are serving! They are making an impact in their homes, schools, and communities, using their ideas and skills to make a difference.
The entire time Jesus was with His disciples, not only was he giving them knowledge and helping them to apply that knowledge to their lives, but he was also helping them learn to serve others. Teaching our children to serve adds a whole new dimension to their spiritual life. They begin to realize that everything is not about them! In fact, life should not be about us at all.
Jesus modeled that life lesson for all of us through his death. On Global Serve Day we will encourage, equip, and empower kids to serve!
