At Student Motion We Serve
1 Corinthians 12:27, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
Here at Student Motion we believe service is a key ingredient in a deeper relationship with Jesus. This year we have had many opportunities to love and serve others. Whether it was in a foreign country, our community, or our own church family, there was a theme that strung it all together: service is putting our faith in motion!
Not only did the students come back with beads in their hair and poor excuses for Jamaican accents, they came home with their hearts changed by the people they met and how God moved. We served in schools, visited elderly and handicapped people, and worked on the grounds at the church. We also led worship, shared testimonies and preached in the local church. We were blessed just as much as we hoped to be a blessing to them. God moved in mighty ways.
Saturday of Service
We had over 60 students and leaders take part in outreach week at Harborside. Whether it was making cards for the elderly, taking cookies to firemen, or spending time with the homeless these students took a step and changed our community.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Every Sunday morning our connect groups serve in the Children’s ministry. They are helping build the children’s foundation in Jesus. We love teaching them scripture and telling them about God’s love for them. We are a family, one body of Christ, and we know serving with the SSK is making a lasting impact on their future.
