Love Your Neighbour:
We want to actually make a difference in our local community. That’s why we went looking for 200 people at River’s Edge to give $70 each to create a fund to help meet some specific needs of individuals in our neighbourhood. Love Your Neighbour is for people who fall through the cracks and whose needs cannot be met by our existing ministries and programs.
The number 70 is significant in forgiveness, extending mercy, compassion and grace. It’s how we can demonstrate through Jesus’ teaching that forgiveness is an unlimited act. Jesus was asked how many times should we forgive and he answered 70 times 7 when it was believed that 7 times would be sufficient. We are here to practically demonstrate that we will help people achieve their full potential in Jesus Christ who forgives and meets all or needs both spiritually and physically through relationship in community.
