What is this service about? 

In Philippians 2 Paul points to the wonderful example Christ lived out – he came as a servant, he came to serve; Paul says we must have the same mind of Christ. As we go into all the world to be Christ’s salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16) we must go with Christ’s mind, as servants. In the PowerPoints, videos, activities, children’s talks and sermon notes in this service outline we are constantly reminded to look to Jesus, and act as he did- as a servant – as we serve the lost around us and among the thousands of unreached people groups around the world.
