I’ve always thought going to church was just to learn about Jesus and grow in that relationship. However there is a huge aspect I was missing, that was also to serve. Jesus. Getting involved, and serving in your church is important even if you are young. As 1 Timothy 4:12 says, “Do not let others look down on you because you are young, but that we should set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, and in purity.” As a teen, I believe it is important for us to serve because it is an action to show we are serving the Lord, and a way for us to set an example for those who are younger than us. Serving has also given me a new perspective to see the different ways kids view Jesus, and the stories they learn. If there isn’t KIDS ROCK, the parents aren’t able to go to church. When I think I don’t “feel” like serving I not only think about pleasing the Lord (2 Cor. 5:9) but I also think about serving the parents so they can grow, and lead their families. It’s a big church so there are obviously lots of kids. Our church serves about two hundred kids a week. Which is practically the size of a small church. It is great to know that I am serving a need of the church, and I try and focus on letting God use me to speak into these children’s hearts as he has used so many people to do in my life. Working with Patty and Page has showed me how much time they put into building a foundation in the kids, and how intentional they are with their lessons.
