Local Missions Back
Jesus tells us that the two greatest commandments are "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind" and "Love your neighbor as yourself". He shows us our neighbor is anyone we encounter... the widow and orphan... the person who is in need, hurting, alone, lost... the person who needs grace, mercy, compassion, a helping hand. Our hope is that every adult Life Group would develop an intentional plan for, at least monthly, engaging our neighbors with the gospel; to seek out a place to serve and love those in need, that through our love, we would make disciples for Christ.
