Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

God put us into communities and asks us to love our neighbor as ourself.  Discuss how to build relationships with neighbors and find hidden gifts and resources that can be used to share the Gospel in your neighborhood.  Hear about pitfalls that hamper community development and take away ideas for how you can serve your neighbors.
