They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasingly busy lives, it's hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We may have hundreds of Facebook "friends," but we often don't even know the full name of the person who lives right next door.This unique and inspiring study asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, we will learn how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to us.Remember to bring your bag supper if you so desire.The study will run for about six weeks (or longer if necessary.) For more information, please call Betsy Annese at 336-416-0447.Opportunities for the WeekTuesday, June 20 11:30 AMSenior and Friends Lunch at Chili’s 100 S.

Freely you received, freely give.
