They also offer Sunday School for children and adults, with separate, helpful classes divided into six different age groups. Learning to love and serve God should continue throughout your life, so the church offers vital support for followers of all ages.
In the Bible, God is shown to be merciful and loving. "The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works" (Pslm. 145.9). The Lord is good to all, not cruel, and shows mercy to all his creatures. The Lord is the source of love and loves unconditionally even giving his only son so that all may have eternal life.
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out! It is a responsibility placed upon each believer to decide to obey God’s word and live out this great salvation worked in us by Christ.
Certainly, I am called to pray and to embrace each soul—the lost souls with the love of Christ and not despise the “little one”. In the light of hope, I gather all people back to the New Eden Garden. Absolutely, my way of living out my faith is to love my brethren including those I serve as God has always loved us. Despite their differences in faith practices, culture, tradition, interest, and ethnicity, I am called to embrace everyone with an openness of heart. As Pope Francis asserted well in his encyclical letter: Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel without excluding anyone.
When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public. Unfortunately, too often we as a nation also let them down. When they feel there is no where to turn, they shut down and isolate themselves. Not only does the distrust impact treatment, youths in foster care will continue to face substantial adversities upon aging out that may reinforce the idea that there is not safety and security in the world. Social Worker’s Role The primary role and responsibility of the clinical social worker in the group is the development and maintenance of a healthy functioning group.

Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school. It is always fun to be around children and teach them about the words of God. if I am indeed inducted into national honor Society I plan to take on more leadership roles to improve the community. I want to be the person that people look up to and say goodbyes from. I hope to be able to help others in anyway shape or form I possibly can and inspire others the same way that others before, had inspired me.
The plan of Salvation is God’s plan for the happiness of His children and is centered on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. They believe that you are made up of a spirit body and a physical body. God created your spirit and you lived with him as a spirit before you were born on earth. Throughout pre-earth life you are taught the principles of the commandments, the plan of salvation, and that through Jesus Christ you would be able to overcome the effects of poor choices. God gave you agency or the power to make choices.
The first belief is “Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of our loving Heavenly Father” (Mormonism 101). This is described to be said, as the Saints believe that God himself sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to save all mankind from their sins. God is said to be the Heavenly Father who listens and answers all prayers and feels sympathy towards them. Later on God was worshipped as the Redeemer, the central guy, to all mankind of the church. He accepts mercy and grace that the followers seek including baptism, communion, praying, and doing good deeds to others around.
That’s when I came across a second article while I researched church groups that tried to make a difference in their communities. The article is written by Teena M. Stewart and its title is “Make your church volunteer friendly”. In the article the author does a great job of explaining how volunteering and helping others is great not physically but also emotionally Teena states: “when you volunteer you step outside of your own world an touch the lives of others” (Stewart, 2003). All of the members of the Dynasty youth- Ministry church group including both my interview subjects Junior and Adolfo have all put in many hours of volunteer work. I know because the church is so close to my house I have seen them cleaning up neighborhoods that are so close to mine.
His chesed has been shown through his mercy and passion in a myriad of ways. I have come to learn and understand God’s chesed, and how it has and will continue to benefit me for the remainder of my life. To begin, one must understand what chesed really is. Chesed is God’s promise to his people and commitment to a relationship with humankind. The meaning can be simplified down to a mere two words, God’s loyalty.
The name of the program where I volunteered was called K4J, which means Kids For Jesus. I spent my time supervising and aiding the campers in their different activities, which consisted of crafts, music, Bible study, snacks, and games. It was this week of volunteering that I experienced God in new ways and grew closer to Him through the campers I worked with. During my time there, I was quite hesitant and anxious. I did not know
Baptism Being involved in a Baptist church has made Baptism an estremely important ceremony to fulfill. The process of being baptized is very simple but its meaning is very powerful. This type of ceremony shows your comittment and dedication to God. It also allows you you change your ways of living and become "re-born". This ceremony symbolizes a new life to worship God and follow his ways.
I always tries my best no matter what I do because God says, “whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men“ (Colossians 3:23). Thirdly, God gave me a positive attitude toward other people and in any situation because I trust that “in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and who have been called according to His purpose” (Romans
