High School Students Practice What Is Preached To Them

A high school age Sunday School class from the First Presbyterian Church of Richland decided that they had heard enough about what Jesus would do. They wanted to do something positive themselves, something Jesus would do. Students conducted a clothing drive at their church and collected over 100 items. Things like jackets, scarves, packages of socks, and mittens were collected. The students tagged the donated items with the words “I am not lost.

Kids can get bored going to church. They often tune out and don’t listen to what is being preached. They may wonder what the point of it all is, and start having questions about their own spirituality. According to Daniel Amen, a great way to keep kids involved and active in their church is to give them purpose. The story above is a wonderful way to show Jesus’ love at work, while keeping kids focused on serving others. Actively serving others will teach kids large life lessons regarding Jesus and what Jesus would do, lessons they might not learn as easily while sitting in a pew.
