Opportunities to love and engage our neighbors! We want to continue to provide healthy and appropriate opportunities to love and engage our neighbors. Social distancing is important, of course, and we want to abide by the protocols being encouraged from local officials. As much as ever, we desire to be Christians who embrace the least of these. Here are a few opportunities for you to consider:
