It is our response to God's grace that we follow the example of Christ and His commands. In John, Jesus tells His disciples, "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you" (v. 12, NIV). Love and service occurs both inside and outside the church. In the church, we can serve and bless one another in many ways, like leading a bible study, teaching children, joining in fellowship activities, bringing food to a potluck, or serving in worship. Outside the church, God calls us to compassion and love for our neighbor. At Grace, we value partnering with other churches to find ways of serving our community by meeting the specific needs right outside our door.
