Jesus said he "did not come to be served, but to serve." And he calls us as his followers to the same lifestyle and attitude of service. But how do we do that? In a world that values power and ease, we need some help in reorienting our hearts as well as our schedules. These six sessions look at key character traits taught and modeled by Jesus that are essential to a life of service in the steps of the Ultimate Servant.

'Each of your students is a unique creation. Some are funny, some serious, some industrious, others are more thoughtful. Together, they make up the body of Christ and are each called to serve in their own special way. Serving Like Christ Together helps students discover ways to serve God by serving others. Six sessions unpack and explain the aspects of a servant's heart that Jesus values most: * Humility and Sacrifice: redefining what it means to be successful * Seeing Christ in Others: learning to serve God by serving his people * Compassion: seeing need and taking action * The Holy Spirit: relying on the Holy Spirit to direct and fuel service * Bondslaves: understanding what it means to be a slave to Christ * Serving Outsiders: discovering the joy of helping difficult people Service gives students a chance to discover their gifts, build friendships inside and outside the group, and refocus their priorities on something larger than themselves.'
