Compassion is a sympathetic understanding of another person's pain with the desire to relieve it.

Ephesians 4:32 - "[And] be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ." 


Prayer for Compassion:
God our Father, help us to follow the example of your Son, Jesus, who reached out to those suffering from illness, loneliness, poverty, and despair.  Fill our hearts with compassion and show us how to love generously as Jesus did. Amen.

Our themes of the year are grace, grit, light, and service.

We are people of A.C.T.I.O.N.
Accepting Christ Today In One Another!
