A Message from our Pastor

Can you name your neighbors? Have you intentionally met them and taken an interest in them? If you have, can you say with any confidence that they will spend eternity in heaven? Jesus said that we were to “love our neighbors.” If I love my neighbor, I will get to know my neighbor. If I love my neighbor, I will be interested in where they are going to spend eternity.

 Summer is a great time to get to know our neighbors. In my neighborhood, for example, many people are out walking or playing with their children after dinner. I want to give you a challenge that for the remaining days of summer you will set out to intentionally meet your neighbors. Maybe it is as simple as walking across the lawn. You might invite them to a cook-out or for ice cream.

Take the time to get to know your neighbors.  God loves your neighbors. God planted you next door or across the street to be His missionary to your street. Share your story with them. Tell them about how Jesus has changed you. Invite them to church. You might be completely surprised at how God could use you to begin drawing your neighbors into a relationship with Jesus.
