"Love Thy Neighbor” is our Summer Initiative where we serve our local communities and share the love of God through practical acts of kindness.  “Loving People” will be put into concrete action as we dedicate one year’s worth of hours (8,760 hours) to serving people around us.  We will do this by individually taking responsibility to meet the practical needs of our friends and neighbors & by partnering with local organizations that are already impacting people in our region.  Our hope is that serving others becomes our focus throughout the year.  Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, & together we can make a difference!
