Good Neighbor Day!

September 28th is

National Good Neighbor Day!

And we want to celebrate it with you!  

In Matthew 28, Jesus said… “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

At Into The Neighborhood, our mission is Loving God. Loving Neighbor, Equipping others to do the same. Sending them out. Our vision is to mobilize prepared people to live our God’s mission for their lives and reclaim, restore and rebuild the landscape of their community.

Our current ‘neighborhoods’ consist of 3 populations:

Southern Barton Heights – Miss Marti’s House

This is where we live and our way of life is based on Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
