Love your neighbor

As Christians we need to make it clear. The KKK, White Supremacy, Neo Nazis and racism, in all its forms, are from the pit of hell. There is no place for racism in Christianity.

Definition of racism

Prejudice, discrimination or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
God created us equal
• Sin causes rifts between people.
Two greatest commandments
(1) Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and soul.
(2) Love your neighbor as yourself.
We are becoming more and more a multi-ethnic church.
• That means we get more opportunities to show our love for people from other ethnicities.
• We are from different ethnic backgrounds, but we share the same culture.
• The culture we all share is God’s Kingdom.
• We want a Kingdom culture of “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
“That which doesn’t heal gets passed down.” ~Steven Furtick

A neighbor is anyone with whom you come in contact and have dialog.
Dear friends, let’s wash our spirits of all hatred. Be filled with Christ’s love and sincerely love everyone on all sides of any issue. --Bob Sorge

Clothes Drive for Buffalo City Mission
The Buffalo City Mission needs clothes for all the family and especially for Back-to-School. Last year the Mission gave away 20,000 pieces of clothes. Please drop off your gently used clothes in the bins by August 27.

There will be no First Wednesday service on September 6, as we take a break between Labor Day Weekend and the start of school. Stay tuned for our Movie Night in October!

Connect Groups – Starting in September
We have some amazing groups starting in September. Please pick up a flyer on the table in the lobby. To register, or if you have any questions, please see the connect group leaders in the café after the service today.

Back to Church Sunday – September 17
Back to Church Sunday is coming up on September 17. We’re having a special service specifically designed to welcome people back to church, so now is a good time to start praying about who you will invite. Jonathan will have a relevant message on called “A Place to Belong,” that will encourage all of us to get plugged in to living life the way we were meant to—with others in authentic community! You won’t want to miss it! This is the perfect opportunity to invite your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to join you and grow deeper in their faith, or perhaps encounter God for the first time.

NEXT STEP – One Day Class – September 23, 9 to noon
Get a feel for what the discipleship process at Love Joy Church is all about! Learn more about God, about yourself, how to serve the world and become a member of Love Joy. Childcare & light refreshments available. Please sign-up at the Connect Group Table.

Audio Podcast

An Audio Podcast of each talk will be available here within 24 hours after the live event.
