Explore vocation through service
After serving those in need, discuss:
- What encounter touched you the most during your time of service?
- Who stands out, whether a person you served or a fellow volunteer or supervisor, and why?
- What did you learn about yourself and God after this experience of service?
- Why is it important to serve and support this particular community in need?
- Would you like to serve this community again? Why or why not?
Work as a youth or campus ministry group to explore the importance of service in action. Make time as a group after the experience to discuss the above questions regarding the community you served and the entire service experience.
