When ONE person does ONE small action to love someone, small results begin to happen. When EVERYONE does ONE small action, BIG results begin to happen. When Jesus said the greatest commandment was to love God and to love your neighbor, he was asked, “Who is my neighbor?” At Southeast, we want to begin with our actual “next door neighbors.” Everyone lives next door to others, so everyone has the opportunity to “love like Jesus where we live.”

This month, join the ONE MATTERS challenge and keep track of the number of small actions you do to show love toward your neighbors. Each week, let's all sign our total number of actions on the block maps in the lobby.  Each of our small actions will add up to BIG results!
