“Won’t You Be My Neighbor” For decades, Mister Rogers was the quintessential neighbor. When he was interviewed about his opening song he said, “Won’t you be my neighbor? Well, I suppose it’s an invitation. It’s an invitation for somebody to be close to you.” In the Christian tradition, when Jesus is asked, “Who is my neighbor,” through story and actions Jesus pointed out that everybody is our neighbor, particularly those in need. John Wesley said, “the world is my parish”. Maybe that is another way of saying the world is my neighbor, those both far AND near. During this series we will look at the key ingredients of being a good neighbor: Abundance, Relationship and Joy.

In conjunction with this series several of our Sunday school classes will be utilizing “The Good Neighbor Experiment” curriculum from SoCe Life. We will also be hosting “Downtown Friday Films”, a weekly film series, in collaboration with community partners each Friday evening in the Wilke Family Life Center. We hope you will join us as we learn to deepen our relationship with Christ AND be a good neighbor. “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
