Students and Volunteers feed faculty and staff at Alta high!
Jesus said in Mark 10:43-45, “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” We know at the seminary that we are parsing (examine or analyze minutely) for the students what it means to be a Christian. But all of that means nothing if we do not put into action what the Word of God says…or more specifically…what Jesus said. As believers, we are called to serve. Jesus so eloquently illustrated this when he washed His disciples feet in John 13. In the spirit of Jesus’ command, we looked for an opportunity to serve Alta High School, the school that sits directly across the street from Alta Canyon Baptist Church where the seminary meets, with approximately 2500 staff and students.
Because of all the hard work they do for all the students at the school and community, and because we know that sometimes it feels like a thankless job that goes under appreciated, the seminary students were looking for a way to show the teachers, administration, and all the support staff our thankfulness and appreciation for all that they do. On October 29th, the students and staff of Alta Christian Seminary treated the staff of Alta High School to a real barbeque lunch with brisket, pulled pork, sausage, baked beans, etc.
We were honored and privileged to serve the school in this small way and to show that we appreciate all that they do. We were blessed to be obedient to God by being obedient to His command to serve others. Not out of what we can get from Him, but because of what He has already done for us.
