This Week’s Family Challenge

Families: Set aside 20 minutes to discuss the following questions:

  1. Why do you think it’s important to serve others on behalf of Jesus? How has your      family served others in the past?  In what ways has it pointed people toward Jesus?
  2. Why do you think it’s important to be fight for unity—that together as a family you seek to bring glory to God? How has your family displayed unity that in the past?  How could your family work together to do a better job of bringing glory to God?

After you have worked through the questions, come up with one thing you can commit to doing in the next month that serves others in the name of Jesus.  It should be something that involves at least an hour or more of your time.  It should also be something you can do together.

Individuals/Singles: Consider these questions, then then try to think of a way to serve  others.  Consider inviting your friends or relatives to participate with you.

Note: If you are falling behind’ in these family challenges, that’s okay.  Just take them one step at a time.  But please be deliberate to work through at each one!
