"Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.
1 Corinthians 10:24

Jesus so lovingly invites us into living a life of purpose, for a purpose.  Embrace the vibrant spirit of community this summer in this inspiration for you to bring your neighborhood together in a celebration of togetherness and fun! From block parties to outdoor movie nights, farmer's markets to local art exhibits, what does it look like for you to create lasting memories and strengthen the bonds that make your neighborhood truly special? We’re kicking off the summer with a whole lot of neighborly love!

Living in Worship

"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship."
Romans 12:1

While summer often encourages us to disconnect, embracing a deeper connection with Jesus opens the door to true freedom and the opportunity to engage more deeply, especially in worship. Is worship merely a slow song sung in quiet reverence, or does it encompass something far greater?

10. Journal: Keep a faith journal

11. Silence: Set aside a day to try to remain still

Do Good. Be Good. Share Good.

"Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good."

At the heart of faith lies the profound truth of God's sovereignty—a reminder that He is not only all-powerful but also intimately involved in our lives. Despite our struggles and uncertainties, His desire to help us remains unwavering. With boundless love and compassion, He stands ready to guide, comfort, and empower us through every challenge and triumph. Trusting in His sovereignty, we find strength in knowing that we are never alone, for His hand is always there to lead us forward on the journey of faith.
