As part of Living Hope’s vision prayer we ask our heavenly Father to “Open doors into our community so we may introduce Jesus and your Kingdom to our neighbours, city and world.” This part of our prayer focuses on our desire as a church family to be outward focused. We want everyone to discover relationship with Jesus as we have. For the next six Sundays we’ll be focusing on this part of the vision prayer.
Next Sunday (May 28) we’ll be starting a new teaching series called “Good Neighbours: Being the neighbour you’ve always wanted.” Each week we’ll be talking about how to transform our neighbourhoods by being a different kind of neighbour, the neighbour Jesus taught his first followers to be.
This week, though, we’ll be looking beyond our own neighbourhoods, to see how we can be a good global neighbour and help the people of a neighbouring country to connect with Jesus. This weekend, in our Global Impact Sunday, one of our International Workers will be speaking and we will renew our partnership with their family to spread the Kingdom of God in the Caribbean Sun region.
I hope you’ll join us this weekend and in the coming weeks, as we learn to become the neighbours that Jesus desires us to be.
See you Sunday,
