Where Love Lives to Kick Off Feb. 22 with Simulcast
Excitement is building as Stonecroft volunteers and staff get ready to host Where Love Lives in communities across the country! Where Love Lives, Stonecroft’s new small group experience, kicks off Feb. 22 with a live simulcast streamed into homes and churches across the country.

In Case You Missed It: Loving Your Neighbors National Call with Author Jan Mathers
The Bible tells us (a lot) that we should love our neighbors. But who, exactly, are our neighbors and how do we love them?
During a national conference call on Jan. 31, Jan Mathers, author of Loving Your Neighbors, encouraged us to develop a heart for our neighbors. Jan was joined on the call by some Stonecroft guests and facilitator Cara Day, Stonecroft Marketing and Communications Director. Volunteers shared their experience with this Stonecroft Bible Study and how it made a difference for them.
Listeners also heard about a special opportunity available in February and March! Those placing orders for Loving Your Neighbors and providing their email addresses at the time they order will have free printables sent to their inbox.
If you missed this call, you can still enjoy listening to this timely discussion. Click on the link below to access a recording of it.
