...in this case, specifically of YOUR neighborhood!  All ages will enjoy drawing simple streets and house shapes and putting in special landmarks.  Leave plenty of room so that you can add information.

 

As disciples of Jesus, we want to connect with those around us.  By knowing us, we pray that they will come to know Him!  And the more we know about our neighbors, the more opportunities we have for connecting.

 

Here are some things you can write down on your map as you learn more about your neighbors:

  • First names
  • Jobs
  • Hobbies/interests
  • Needs
  • Faith Journeys

Share prayer requests for your neighbors with your Connection Group.  Plan ways that you can use your group's resources to meet neighbors' needs.

 

God, help us to prioritize time and energy spent with neighbors, so they may know You and Your Gospel hope. Save them for Jesus' sake and Your Glory! Amen.

 

Matthew 22 - "37Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
