In Mark 10:43-45, Jesus instructs His disciples saying, “Among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” As we learn about who we are and truly discover our purpose, we are reminded that we are all called to service.
(1 Peter 4:10, Ephesians 2:10, Ephesians 4:1, Isaiah 6:8, 2 Timothy 1:9…)
The goal of Serving Saturday is to encourage opportunities for service, highlight specific ministries, and provide tangible examples of putting your talents to work in service of others in the name of Jesus Christ. As St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the Gospel always and if necessary use words.”
