August 20 - October 8

When asked to summarize the law, Jesus responded with two simple commands: “Love God and love people.” Simple … but not easy. In another teaching on the subject, Jesus said, “If you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do that?” Ouch! The command of Jesus to love is not merely a warm fuzzy emotion, but a difficult, sometimes even dangerous proposition. How we love God has a direct impact on our capacity to love others, and how we love others, is the most accurate reflection of how we truly love God. From the love of a husband and wife to the love we are called to have for our enemies, every relationship has the potential to expand and strengthen our love for God. Join us for a series that explores what the Bible teaches us about how to love well.

During the LOVE WELL series we will have several workshops available:


    Saturday, August 26, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
