To love God is to also love neighbor. Loving God is the Great Commandment and the second is like it:  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  On these two hang all the law and the prophets. - Matthew 22:38-40; How can we say that we love God whom we have not seen and not love those whom we see daily. - I John 4:20; Most of all, let love guide your life, for then the whole church will stay together in perfect harmony. - Colossians 3:14; We know that we have passed from life to death because we love one another. - I John 2:14

The scripture above reminds us that loving God is manifested in love of one another. They are inextricably tied.

Below are some of the activities and past and future events that support this area of our Vision.
