WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOUR

“Listening is where love begins: listening to ourselves and then to our neighbour.”

—Mr.Rogers

“…you shall love your neighbour as yourself.”  

—Jesus

Who are the neighbours of Lynn Valley United? How are they making a difference in God’s world? How can we be a good neighbour? 

Beginning Sept. 7 until Oct. 18 activities and worship at LVUC are going to be centered around these questions. Please join in and be part of wondering how, along with our neighbours, we can make a difference in God’s world.
