Seeking to BLESS someone, whether from our community or beyond, every week. Attempting to EAT with someone that we don't live with every week. Growing in a practice of taking time, at least once each week, to LISTEN to the voice of God's Spirit. Developing a discipline of LEARNing from the Bible. Living out what we learn and experience of God as we are SENT into life.
What does it mean to serve? Look up the following verses: Genesis 12:2-3 1 Peter 4:10 Philipians 2:3-4,7 John 13:34 James 2:14-26
