9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
There are no on campus gatherings until further notice. Please use the links below to find updates and resources in this season.
Join us live this Sunday, March 29 at 9:30 am for a service focused on "God's Love for the Nations & Neighborhoods in a Covid-19 World."
Jesus was a good neighbor, he always put the needs of others before himself. When we help our neighbors we are putting the needs of others before ours, just like Jesus did! Jesus tells us that first we need to love God and second love our neighbors as ourselves (Matt.22:37-39; Mark 12:30-31). When we love God, we are sure to love others.
Do you remember a time where God showed His love in the Bible?
What are ways we help each other in our home? (Parents, this question provides a great time to really celebrate your child’s efforts - call out their neighborly acts as specifically as possible!)
What might be some of the needs in our neighbors home?

A Blessing can be a prayer of commission, a bible passage, or words of encouragement. Blessings can be spoken over a child for the purpose of declaring God’s protection, joy, and wisdom over a child. When speaking about blessings, Dallas Willard said a blessing is “willing with God something good for the other person.” Use your own words or the words below to pray a blessing out loud over your child:
When we bless our kids, we’re not merely articulating hopes and wishes. We’re asking God to shape our sweet little ones into who he has created them to be. - Emily Schulz
(Insert child’s name), may you know that Jesus is fully God. God has modeled for us how to love our neighbors. May you become like Him, humble in spirit and with a heart of compassion and grace love and serve those around you.
