We’ve all had moments of need. But we’ve also had moments where someone showed up for us. This is someone who came through for you, loved you, believed in you. Someone just simply showing up can make all the difference. Aren’t we all longing for that, edge-of-your-seat, movie-perfect, game-changing moment? What if we could provide the hope needed to tip a moment of despair into a life marked by redemption and revival. A life that is forever changed—unbound by the mistakes or the neglect of the past.
The Church of Jesus Christ was made for these moments. This is our opportunity, every day—if we’re willing. Let’s be a people who spread hope simply by loving our neighbors as God loves us: generously, and freely. Let’s rally around our city and declare that we are for our kids, for our schools, for our community.
