Encouraging growth, giving and service
Teaching nice Words, grace and compassion
Emphasizing Jesus first
Offering an opportunity to share God's love
Demonstrating youth and adults in honor based relationships
Lifting up praise to our Lord through prayer
Being in touch with the current generation
Building faith and Spirit filled role models
Enriching lives with the truth of the Gospel
