This week in Student Worship, we continue a series about the church: WE ARE THE CHURCH (I know… ingenious)!
The series is about God sending His people, whether that be Israel in the Old Testament or the church in the New Testament. Our focus on Wednesday centers on the call of Abram (Genesis 12), which in a lot of ways is the beginning of God’s establishment of a people that are His.
God promises to make Abram a great nation through whom “all the nations of the earth will be blessed.” How will this be accomplished? Through parenting!
God speaks later of the promise (Genesis 18:17-19):
The Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do, seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.”
Your role as a parent is highly significant and even plays a part in God’s desire to reach the nations for His fame. There is no higher calling on your life than to follow God and lead your children spiritually.
I’m thankful that I can partner with and serve you in this endeavor!
I love being your Student Pastor!

**Student Worship is a gathering of Middle and High school students from 6:30-8:00 on Wednesday nights. Doors open after school for students who want to get a bite to eat or do homework in our Student Center. Parents/ adult leaders serve as small group leaders after a time of worship and preaching.
