OPEN! Breaking Barriers: Developing God's Heart for Our Neighbors

What are the barriers we each need to overcome in order to love others well as Jesus commanded? We can have internal barriers based on our environments growing up, media, or limited exposure to cultural experiences. Jesus came to break down the barriers and He prayed for unity so we can love one another freely. In this 5-week experiential study we will explore Scripture, reflect on our experiences, and participate in cultural outings to help us develop God's heart for our neighbors and live in the unity Jesus prayed for in John 17. Facilitated by Jessica Fick and Natalie Moultrie.
