Here is a recap of what happened the past Saturday.
We started off with a time of testimony, sharing with one another the good things God has done for us. After that we had a time of praise and worship. :)
After that, the youth were surprised when we were asked to do some community service by picking up rubbish outside the church. Why? Hint: It has something to do with the topic of the day. Haha, we all laughed and cried together, but it was still had lots of fun. :)
the rubbish we collected ..yeah!!
Charissa then shared with us a message on Talents. On the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30, we learned that talents were very valuable in those days, as each talent represented a large sum of money. 3 Servants were given talents by their master, and all but one went out and multiplied their talents for their master. The 2 were then praised by their masters, but the one who did not do anything with his talent and had it taken from him.
Just like the 3 servants, we were all given talents by God, but we need to use it for God's Kingdom and to bless others, not keep it to ourselves. Picking up rubbish was just one of the ways we can use our talents. :) We were then asked to make a list of all our talents and how we can use them for God's Kingdom.
Have a blessed week ahead!! :)
