“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God were pleading through us:
we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God”
Pre- Servants is a two-year program where youth in high school can prepare to become servants, a term used in our church to describe teachers in Sunday school and teach young children about the faith of our church.
The mission of the Servants’ Preparation program is to provide the participants with a solid Orthodox Christian education which enables them to grow in faith, to search for knowledge and truth, and continue building the kingdom of God on earth. By active involvement in the learning process, the pre-servants are prepared to “serve the Lord with gladness” (Psalm 100:2) and for lives of Christian leadership. They are also prepared to pass God’s love to others and the right Christian teaching to future generations. The pre-servants curriculum includes various spiritual topics, for example: Bible study, church dogma, rituals, church history, comparative religion, and theology. The pre-servants meeting is held once a week every Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the church.
