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.

New Year's Eve Ice Skating

What better way to bring in the New Year than celebrating with your church family?

Come one and all. This is an event for all ages!

As Steve G is known for sharing, many youth at our church learned how to ice skate because of this event. As well as for those of us who are a bit older, this is a great event to to dust off those skates and socialize with people you love. So please bring the whole family, invite friends. The more the merrier, truly! This event needs you. 

Cost: $10 per skater, $2 skates. Maximum of $40 per family (so bring more than 4 people and the rest skate for FREE!!)

Please come and bring everyone that you know! :-)
