Church service or service to the church—what does this mean? The church is more than a building. It is where the “church” or God’s people come together to worship Him, and encourage one another to follow Him. In Hebrews 10:24-25, it says, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Thus, the church is people assembling.
In Galatians 5:13-14, it says, “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
We are called to serve one another, which means we should serve our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as our neighbors. How can we serve our church? Instead of coming to church and looking for our needs to be met, we should come to church looking to meet the needs of others. Let’s see just how we can do this!

I love the KOF readers. The stories are so well done, and the Scripture application is not just for the children. The lesson plans are simple to follow.
