How to Care for your Neighbors

We are currently in uncharted waters, navigating our way through this nationwide pandemic of the coronavirus. While our government officials and medical personnel work on the front lines of stopping the spread of the virus, we are left to figure out how exactly to press forward during this “new normal.” While we hope this “new normal” is short-lived, there are some steps we can take to be responsible citizens, as well as God honoring Christians during this time. 

In Mark 31 we read:

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

We want to be a neighbor-loving church. Here are some practical tips for loving your neighbor well amidst this troubling time.
