40 Days of Love!
Sunday, February 14-March 25, 2021
When Jesus was asked to identify the greatest of all the commandments that God had given, He did not limit it to just one. This is what He said: “The most important one is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these” (Mark 12.30-31). But how do we love God? Our neighbors? Ourselves? That’s what the 40 Days of Love is designed for—to give practical encouragement in how to love God, others, and self according to God’s ideas of love! Anod how much we need it. Jesus told us that as time progresses, "...the love of many will grow cold" (Matthew 24.12).
We hope you will join us on this journey of love! It includes 40 daily readings that should begin on February 14. You can access these daily readings through a printed booklet that is available now or through a daily email delivered to your inbox during the emphasis. The format is simple: there is a short (one page) reading for each of the 40 days. We pray that these will both encourage you and equip you in your desire to grow in love as together we are pursuing life in Christ with passion and purpose! You can get the free booklet on Sundays in the Welcome Center OR by calling our church office OR if you would prefer to receive the daily reading as an email each day, you can click on "CONTACT US" in the Main Menu above and leave your email address with the message "40 Days of Love." As a final option, you can download a PDF of the booklet HERE. (But don't start until February 14!)
The 40 Days of Love begins Sunday, February 14, 2021 (how's that for timing?), and goes through Thursday, March 25, 2021. In addition to the daily readings, there will be six messages in Sunday Morning Worship as well as special lessons in our Life Groups and more...
