Part of the kick off for the mentoring program is the blessing of the program. Essentially, this means that the mentoring program is given a special "shout out" during the service and the mentees and mentors are called up to the front of the church and given a special blessing for the upcoming mentoring/school year.
At the church service, the theme was "Faith In God." The message was that if we have faith (belief and trust) in Jesus Christ, the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains, and that all things are possible. The only thing that could get in our way of overcoming life's obstacles, strength to endure hardships, guidance in our life's journey and joy is fear and doubt. What I got from this sermon is that while prayer may not change our circumstances or make things happen quickly, it will definitely change you. Faith, as the pastor told the congregation is not a "get out of suffering card." Basically, it all in how you deal with life's stresses.
Scripture: Matthew 10:1; 17:14-20
