The Missions Team has provided the funding for this neighbourhood initiative. The hope is that you will be encouraged and feel supported to nurture the shalom of your neighbourhood(the flourishing and well-being of your neighbours)... so that you JOIN IN with what God is already doing where you live. "The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighbourhood." John 1:14 MSG He places us in neighbourhoods…to join His restoration work of the kingdom.
We know the power of small efforts (think mustard seed or yeast). We want to affirm small efforts to build connection in your neighbourhood…so…consider a grant to plant some seeds.
*myEiGHT was coined by Joe and Heidi White(former youth pastors in our community) and refers to the 8 neighbours who live around you.
