A community is created by the people who gather, share, learn and grow. A community welcomes strangers for dinner, invites neighbors to sit on the Front Porch and sincerely asks another their life story.

Matthew 25:35-36 reminds us just how we are to truly care for one another in community:

“I was hungry and you fed me,

I was shivering and you gave me clothes, 

I was sick and you stopped to visit, 

I was in prison and you came to me.”
