On Sunday, we were blessed to hear from Craig Gross of XXX Church, who preached about what it means to love your neighbor. "If you're not praying for your friends, there's no way you're praying for your enemies." Gross, who has been occupying the streets of the porn industry, challenged the assumption that your neighbor is someone who is like you or near you but instead the people God has called you to reach. We're gearing up for another explosive week at Hillsong, and here are ways you can get plugged in this week:
On Tuesday, we are going to have an Exchange Bible Study. If you are a new believer of Jesus or are interested in learning the building blocks of our faith, this is for you. We will be meeting at 155 E 22nd Street at 7:30 p.m. Also, Tuesday night Connect Groups will be meeting across the city. If you're interested in joining a group, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or stop by one of the information bars at the next service.
