Love Explosion

Experience and Share the extravagant love of jesus

What is Love Explosion?

Love explosion is simply a tool to experience and pass along the Father's love. Our Love Explosion events are designed to give everyone the opportunity to reveal the goodness and love of God through simple actions that meet the needs of those in our community. These are no strings attached gestures of love and kindness, something that is extremely rare in the world today. Jesus paid attention to those around Him and was able to perceive their needs, He touched broken people in the place where they were broken. It’s our hope that through these Love Explosion events, the love of the Father will be shared with people creating an open door to the message of Jesus.

How Can I get Involved?

There are four simple ways to engage in Love Explosion:
> Participate in the Love Explosion Kindness Calendar
> Grab a note from the Love Well Wall in the Narthex at UppeR Room
> Do the Hershey Kiss Love Challenge Starting February 11th, 2018
> Serve at the Love Explosion Outreach on Saturday, February 17th, 2018
Essentially, just love someone in some special way. Then, share your story!

Thursday's Kindness Calendar suggestion was to do something kind for our mail carrier. We put a Hershey bar in the mail box and attached a thank you note. What fun!
