All babies are born into the world immediately selfish. When they are hunger, it is time to eat right then! When they need a diaper change, they need it right now! When they are tired, a nap is a necessity right now! The signal for NOW is some form of a screeching cry or yell. Selfishness!
It’s not just babies who are known for displays of selfishness. Many adults battle it while many others perfect it. It’s all about their careers, their reputations, their bank accounts, their lives. They adjust their days to fulfill as many of their desires as they can. In the meantime, they seem to overlook everyone else with a focus that goes no further than their own noses.
Selfishness has been a human problem since the beginning of time. Eve’s selfish desires cost her and her family a paradise (Genesis 3). Achan’s selfishness cost him his life (Joshua 7). Rehoboam’s selfishness cost him a kingdom (I Kings 12). That’s the odd thing about selfishness—it often leads to complete loss.

Several events are planned each year, both locally and in other states. Some are strictly fun and fellowship. Others are spiritual in nature. A few of the activities our youth participate in are:
