connect with your neighbors irl

The whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
— Galatians 5:14

do you feel like your missing something when it comes to connecting with your neighbors? 

The neighborhoods of today can seem drastically different than those of your childhood. Gone are the days where kids would play in the street for hours and moms would read a book on the front porch with a refreshing lemonade. 

Your neighborhood may feel more like casual acquaintances than life-long friends. We experience closing garages, drive-by waves and very little real-life conversations with the people we live closest to. 

 

what if your neighborhood could be different? 

We need friends – real life, close friends. "Social networks" abound, but the crushing crowd of updates, hashtags, likes, and comments don't cancel out our loneliness (source). In the search for connectedness, we surrender real opportunities for community to a flurry of digital interruptions (see phubbing).

It's time to be neighbors again. It's time to dial up the compassion and realize many of our neighbors are going through things worse than we are. Some are struggling in deep ways – and they could use a friend. A close friend.

Every problem is a relationship problem, and we have a relationship problem. Let's become neighbors again. We need a rebirth of community.

What if the neighborhood was the church?

When it comes to knowing our neighbors in real life, it's going to take more than a simple wave as we drive by or lending that cup of sugar every once in a while. We'll need to jump in and invest in relationships right where we live.

Here at Neighbors Church, we make it easy. We help neighborhood leaders start Bible studies and churches in their homes right in the middle of the neighborhood. Together, we create great places to invest in relationships and become friends with neighbors. Neighborhood churches exist to make the neighborhood become even better than we remember.

At Neighbors Church, our goal isn't to start one large church drawing from many different neighborhoods. We are passionate about helping you find a home church right in your neighborhood. We're all about empowering you to build friendships and become neighbors right where you live. 

We know that process to finding the right church can feel big and overwhelming.  That's why we're here to help. We'll help you find the closest Neighbor Church so that you can start building friendships in your neighborhood.


Love (with action) your neighborhood
