Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:7-9
This weekend a number of our kids, their parents, and others who have been working hard for months will be heading to Memphis to represent the Estes congregation at the annual Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes convention. They have been studying scripture, practicing puppets shows, planning speeches, preparing for debate rebuttals, leading singing, creating scrapbooks and art projects, and working on a number of other skills. These skills are training them to have the confidence and zeal to serve the Lord’s church well into the 21st century.
When you hear the word “fellowship” what do you think of? Some of us may think “Oh no! I’m going to have to hug somebody!” Some may think “Oh boy! A potluck meal.” Some may have the word “worship” come to mind. We do know for sure that we are to “fellowship” one another. One such passage is Acts 2:42 “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
