“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
Operation Love Your Neighbor (OLYN) is FUMC's community ministry program. As a church family our purpose is "to know Christ and to make Him known". Our Lord has called us to be His hands, His feet and His heart in loving service to members of our community, especially those who are the most vulnerable. We bear witness to the gospel message clearly and effectually when we are living demonstrations of the Spirit of Christ, manifesting His presence to our community through loving service to others.
Jesus was asked: "Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?" Jesus replied, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments." (Matt. 26:36-40)
