FBC's Student Ministry had a weekend of service July 28-30. On Friday evening they offered free childcare for Kdg - 6th graders at the church and on Saturday they volunteered at Resale With a Purpose. On Sunday the students led out in our Worship Services. They assisted the Greeter's Ministry in the Welcome Center, the Wednesday evening student band led worship music in both services and Andrew Wroth and 3 of our students - Kodi Grossman, Elijah Jackson and Keith Flex shared the message for the day.

Following is an excerpt from the message:
Matthew 14:13-21 talks about the feeding of the 5,000. Jesus took 5 loaves and 2 fish, blessed the food and then broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples. The disciples then gave them to the crowds. Kind of how the deacons serve us at the Lord's supper. That’s how Jesus served the people.
John 13:5 describes an event where Jesus served His disciples: He did tasks that were generally left to the servants, like washing feet. He poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples feet, drying them with the cloth that was wrapped around him.
Jesus brought a little girl back to life, cured people of demons, and healed people of their leprosy. These are all examples how Jesus was in service to the people.
When Jesus and his disciples were on a boat, He had fallen asleep and rough storms had rocked the boat. The disciples had lost faith, but when Jesus had awakened He calmed the storms.
Jesus’ whole life was an act of service. All the way until the day He died on that cross for us. He didn’t have to do all of that, but He chose to wear the crown of thorns for us, be mocked and ridiculed for us, humiliated and beaten and ultimately sacrifice his life on that cross FOR US. He completed the ultimate act of service.
