Welcome to 2017! This year our church is attempting to improve at the two things Jesus said matter the most........to love the Lord with all our being and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. It's a simple concept but will require an adjustment in how we do life. To get you started please take the neighbor quiz below. This comes from my friend's church in Colorado. See how you rate. We're on a journey together to grow in neighboring skills. Catch you next time, MB
