RGrowing in relational skills and as responsible individuals – “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.” (Hebrews 10:24)

O – Growing in opportunities to serve others – “Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)

W – Growing in wisdom – “Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding.” (Proverbs 3:13)
