February - A Month of Love
“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.” John 13:34-35 (The Message)
Valentine’s Day – a day of sharing love. God’s love for us is agape love (selfless, sacrificial, and unconditional love). He loves us even when we're not loveable! By sharing your love, you are giving something of value to someone else. That can be something as simple as time. LINK depends on hundreds of volunteers to share their valuable time with others to provide food to the families in our community.
