New Hampshire social studies teacher Christa McAuliffe was one of the NASA crew members who was killed when the space shuttle Challenger broke apart shortly after launch in January, 1983. In the press conferences leading up to the shuttle launch, and in countless articles and biographies written since her death, McAuliffe was viewed as an inspirational figure not simply for her courage to step into the unknown, but for her steady dedication to the art of education. A phrase she was known to speak (and even wear, as a t-shrit with the saying printed on it was counted among her luggage loaded onto the Challenger that day) captures the significance of her life’s work: “I touch the future. I teach.”
One of the core ways we express our faith here at Southland is to radically invest in the next generation. Like Christa McAuliffe - like any parent or teacher - we understand that the future is always about our children, and that one of the most meaningful things we can do in our lives is to positively impact a child. Couple this with God’s mission of making disciples and bringing the kingdom of heaven to come right here in our present reality and, well, it’s not hard to see how important the next generation really is.
At Southland in Georgetown, we have a significant need for adults who are willing to make a kingdom-sized impact in the lives of some kids. Each Sunday, our Big Picture Show environments teach kids from birth through fifth grade about what it means to find their own story inside of God’s great plan. As our campus continues to grow, more and more kids are joining in these environments. Today we find ourselves at a point where the number of adult leaders has not kept pace with the number of children.
Could you be one of the courageous souls willing to touch the future for a few minutes on Sunday mornings? Our biggest need is for small group leaders for our elementary-aged kids during the 11:15 service. We truly need you to help make a kingdom difference!
