There is a growing movement across our nation to something that is both incredibly simple yet extremely difficult. Loving Your Neighbor.
It is one of the two key commands Jesus gave, but in our mobile 21st-century context we have lost the art of loving (or even knowing) our literal next door neighbors. God has uniquely created you and placed you to be His connection to a disconnected world. You are sent by God to be a light to your neighbors.
Several local churches have created resources that they want to make available to you to help make this happen!
Use these resources and work through them individually, as a family, or as a Small Group. Then commit to being intentional about reaching out to your neighbors, getting to know them, and praying for them.
Thanks to Jim Llyod of The Bridge Church, Paul Haroutunian of Evangelicals for Social Action (ESA/ Love INC), Ben Dosti of Harvest Bible Chapel Fresno, and Scott Carolan of The Well Community Church.
