Lesson (Big Idea):

There’s more to faith than just coming to church.  In order for us to be #JesusStrong, we have to train in our faith on a daily basis.  While a lot of people may claim As followers of Jesus, it’s important that we “Go Beyond” just constantly being served.  Jesus showed us this example by coming to serve rather than be served. If we’re going to follow His example, we should serve others as He did, and serving in Church using the gifts/abilities He gave us.  It’s important that we serve.  And when we get involved/serve others, people will be even more encouraged to follow Jesus and become #JesusStrong.


Goal: Students will be able to serve in the Church in some capacity.
