Love Thy Neighbor …

Our May worship series will look at the literal art of neighboring as we consider how to make a real difference in our community. Too often we hear and profess that the greatest commandment is to “Love thy neighbor as ourselves,” but we don’t really know what that means. Come and join in worship and learn some practical ways to live out Christ’s call to share in love with one another.

This series is based on a book by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon called The Art of Neighboring. You’re invited to read the book as we go through the worship series. You can find the book online at

Worship is held each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome!

Loving Where We Live
May 13, 2018

We don’t live where we live by accident. And it’s not because we like the floor plan, or the school system, or because it’s all we can afford. If this text is true, then we live where we live because God has placed us in our specific neighborhoods for a reason. We need to rediscover a “theology of place” and begin to really Love Where We Live!

Taking the Great Commandment Literally
May 20, 2018

The power and genius of The Great Commandment is that it’s so simple and yet extremely powerful when acted on. The smartest thing that we can do collectively to impact our city is to actually live out Jesus’ command to love our neighbors.

The Time Barrier
May 27, 2018

In order to take The Great Commandment seriously, we must create space in our lives to build relationships with those who live near us.

The Fear Factor
June 3, 2018

In order to take the Great Commandment seriously, we must see those who God has placed around us. It’s not always going to be pretty, but it is going to be significant.
