Who Is My Neighbor?

Friday, June 4, 5-7 pm and Saturday, June 5, 9-11 am

Children along with their parents/grandparents/adult faith mentors are invited to gather as we discover what it means to be a neighbor…to be in relationship with the people God places in our midst, to both serve and be served by them. Participants will explore what this means – for them and for the community – through hands-on activities, snacks, songs, worship and prayer. Registration begins May 9.
