They patrol around campus, help students who lock themselves out of their own cars and even offer “lost and found” services. They are always ready to help a student in need. And though they sometimes seem like superheroes, they are also real people with real lives.

Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.’” “I was considering the message of why I love working here and serving the Bethel community.
