Love Does

Sign ups for Love Does on April 21 now going on!

Each year our church family celebrates Love Does- a day of caring for our community! We will be working on various projects throughout Longview and there is something for all ages and abilities to do. You can read more about our projects here and sign up to be involved in either the Welcome Center or Faith Center on Sunday morning or you can sign up now online. If you have any questions please email Pastor Becca at bnewcomb@longviewfumc.org.

When we consider love, we often think in terms of thoughts and feelings, but love is
so much deeper than that. Love is not just lofty ideas or fluttering feelings; love
takes action. The life of Jesus, and His example of serving others, teaches us this.
On Saturday, April 21, we will take our love out to the community so that others can
experience the love of Christ.

Join us because “Love Does.”
