Love Your Neighbor
As followers of Jesus Christ, we love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt 22:37-40). Here are some ideas and resources to help you do that. How will you love your neighbor today?
- Call someone who might feel lonely and just listen
- Send an encouraging text or hand-written card to someone
- Offer to run errands for someone in an at-risk category
- …or allow someone to serve you in that way
- Write letter to your neighbors
- Sample from George Family
- Letter Template – customize and give to your neighbors
- Write a chalk message on the sidewalk for those walking past your house
- Support Chelten’s Food Pantry: Seeds of Hope (see below)
- Be creative!
