Grace Names 2K Neighbors to Love

By Rev. Matthew Johnson

It seems that Grace people know a lot of people! 

As part of our "Art of Neighboring" sermon series, those in attendance were asked to learn and submit the names of their immediate neighbors on a "block map" form distributed in the weekly bulletin. The office received 129 submissions that included more than 2,000 names! That's more than 2,000 people for Grace households to love in the name of Jesus; more than 2,000 people with whom we are called to serve in ministry. And, as a result of these 129 submissions, $129 has been donated to "charity: water" in the name of Grace by an anonymous donor. 

Now comes the fun part — building and/or growing relationships with those neighbors. If you'd like help in this, please contact Pastor Matthew (matthew.johnson@
