“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
What would it look like if Jesus moved into your neighborhood? Do you think anyone would notice? Love Where You Live is a study to cultivate a richer understanding of what it means to live in God’s image, THE Gracious Giver, and to fulfill our calling to fruitfully serve others. It will help us figure out how to love like Jesus right where we live. It is not a study to inspire us to just feel loving feelings but to take loving actions.
In February 2016, Keystone launched a 6-week sermon series, combined with a 4-week all-church study and many ways to serve our community generously. Teachings and video resources are provided below.

Love Where You Live Stories
These stories follow the challenge that Pastor Ken gave during the reverse offering. What is a reverse offering? It is an offering where we handed out envelopes to everyone in attendance. Inside the envelopes was either a $5, $10, $20 and in some cases a $100 bill and a note encouraging the person holding the envelope to use this money to bless someone else. We then asked people to share how God prompted them to use those resources and also asked people to share how other people had been generous toward them. Here are the stories that were shared.
