During a time where personal contact and face-to-face interactions are being discouraged, how can we as followers of Jesus continue to display love for our neighbors and pave the way for gospel conversations? Here are a few ideas to help our members continue to prioritize making disciples of Jesus for the glory of God.
Love Your Neighbor
Please take all the appropriate precautions as you seek to serve others. It may be helpful to utilize neighborhood Facebook pages, the Nextdoor App, or other social media connections to make yourself available to serve.
