“I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me” John 15:15
Last week we kicked off our first Summer Club Fun of the summer! These Thursdays are a great opportunity for the kids in our community to channel their energy in a fun and educational way.
During the Summer Club Fun “Friendship Fiesta,” our students not only learned how to be trustworthy friends, but also how to trust in God.
While reading the story of Moses, we saw that, even though Moses was chosen by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, he had doubts that he was right for the job. Still, despite his fear, he accepted this calling. In response to his faithfulness, God placed Aaron in Moses’ life to be a friend that would guide him to accomplish the things he didn’t think he could do. From this story, our students learned that following God isn’t always easy, especially when facing the unknown; however, even when we’re scared, we trust God and know that he will always provide for us.
We continued to learn how to be model friends like Aaron - friends that support and encourage one another - but more importantly, we learned that we can always look to God for these qualities as well.
We treasure these afternoons when we can spend time with these awesome kids. Next week we’ll get a whole week with them for Summer Scholars! We can’t wait.
