Let’s commit to forty days of intentional kindness in Bulloch County, Georgia. We’ll lift up our community with random acts of kindness each day as we prepare our hearts for Easter. Sundays will be a day of rest.
A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. Galatians 5:22-23
Lent is a season that calls us to reflect and consider our commitment to Jesus Christ. Often, during Lent, Christians fast or take up spiritual disciplines that help them grow in their relationship with Christ.
Throughout these forty days, from Ash Wednesday to Easter, I want our community to witness Christ’s call to unity through simple and sacrificial acts of kindness. In a world divided by candidates, platforms, issues, and parties, Jesus calls us all to unity. This unity is born out of love and expressed to our neighbors through kindness. But kindness, like unity in Christ, is a fruit that must be cultivated over time through daily choices.
That’s why we’re taking on this challenge. CLICK HERE for simple ways to cultivate kindness throughout the season of Lent. I believe that random acts of kindness not only bless those who receive them, but also help us create a more unified and caring culture and community. After all, the fruits of the Spirit are not intended simply to build us up, but to be shared with the world around us.
Let’s choose kindness this Lent and work to love our neighbors well.
For Jesus. For People. For Community.
(And For Kindness!)

This is so needed this day and time. Many don’t understand the word kindness anymore.
