Last year, in the August 7, 2019 edition of the bulletin, it was announced that we were going to be having TWO “Neighbor Days” in 2020: one in the spring and one in the fall.
It was also announced that these special days of outreach would correspond to 5th Sundays (aka “Agape Sundays”).
Guess what? March 29, 2020 is fast approaching. March 29, 2020 is the first 5th Sunday of 2020. March 29, 2020 is our first “Agape Sunday” of 2020. March 29, 2020 is also our first “Neighbor Day” of 2020!
Truth be told, I had forgotten about having two Neighbor Days this year until the elders and deacons meeting last Sunday night. In that meeting, we set a goal of having 125 souls present...so everybody is going to have to help by inviting their neighbors.
Truth be told, I feel God was at work in beginning our Sunday morning series on fellowship...because it fits nicely with the concept of Neighbor Day.
On March 29, 2020 the sermon is going to focus on “Our Life Together: An Accepting Fellowship.”
Acceptance seems to be one of those “hot button” topics. How do we show acceptance? Who do we accept?
Obviously we are going to be a fellowship that calls people to leave their life of sin, like Jesus did to the woman caught in adultery, for example (see John 8:1-11).
But what about things that are not “lives of sin” that seem to divide us? We’re going to talk about that on March 29, 2020.
Of course, on March 29, 2020 we will start the day with our wonderful Bible classes for all ages.
Of course, on March 29, 2020 we will share in a meal after our morning worship service.
Of course, on March 29, 2020 we will not have evening services.
Now when is our first Neighbor Day of 2020?
