Love Your Neighbor Serve Cards
God has given us neighbors, friends, and others to serve. Especially during a time where so many must self-isolate in order to stay well, we want to love our neighbors and community well. Love Your Neighbor serve cards (linked below) are a simple way to make contact with a neighbor to offer help. If you want to offer additional services to your neighbor, just make a notation inside the designated box. If you are looking to specifically serve a FBCP church member, look for contact information through the Church Life app.
