Students Encouraged to go M.A.D. at School—To Make a Difference

This Sheridan church held a special service for all students heading back to school.
This Sheridan church held a special service for all students heading back to school.

If ‘A’ is for apple, ‘B’ is for boy, and ‘C’ is for cat, then what is ‘G’ for?  ‘G’ is for God, at least, that’s what Pastor Scott Lee of Bethesda Worship Center hopes students returning back to school will remember.

Saturday night, the church had a student commissioning service for all students elementary through college, regardless of age.  It’s all about sending the kids out into a new school year with a blessing.  School is their mission field, says Lee.

Peers listen to peers, but for Christian students, it doesn’t have to be all God-talk; it’s all about lifestyle, loving God and loving people.

First day of classes for most Sheridan County students is Monday, August 30th.

What a great story!

I am so grateful to live in a comunity that encourages our youth to share Christ. Pastor Scott Lee went to high school here in Sheridan and started sharing and preaching while in high school. We would be blessed to see our children rise up in this generation. With school starting we need to bless and pray for our children for a great year! May they boldly profess Christ Jesus for who he is to their peers. Thanks you for this story.

Why is this here?

This feels like this would be more appropriate in a Bethesda Worship Center sunday bulletin rather than a local news website.
