Love Thy Neighbor Week

We learn in Mark 12:21 that Jesus teaches us that the second greatest commandment is “namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

We know that loving our neighbor is something we should do all year round but we anted to take a week to emphasize this truth and provide opportunities to get involved in showing love to our neighbors. We encourage you to consider taking one of the opportunity on the front page and one on the back page! Let’s make this week special for this community for God’s glory!
