Calvin Theological Seminary invites you to the second Loving Your Neighbor Conference which will be held at Calvin Seminary from July 30th to August 1st, 2018. Conference Theme: According to Jesus, the first and greatest commandment is to love God, and the second commandment is to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But what does loving your neighbor mean for us today especially with neighbors who arrive as a result of migration, immigration or as refugees? Each year, thousands of people arrive in the United States and Canada as refugees or immigrants. Some refugees are children who arrive as unaccompanied minors, having been separated from their families abroad as they fled violence or disaster. How does the Bible help us navigate in this time and place? We will ask, from a variety of perspectives, “What Does ‘Loving Your Migrant, Immigrant and Refugee Neighbor’ Mean Today?” We invite pastors, ministry leader, and lay members to attend this conference and to hear from a variety of speakers about their ministries and services to immigrants, migrants, and refugees.

This summer our youth group will experience the great beauty of both people and nature in the scenic small town of Taylorsville, North Carolina from June 30 to July 8. By participating in work projects, running a Kids Club, helping at a local nutrition program and supporting a few other ministries, we’ll make connections with the people of the area while addressing some significant needs. In the evenings, our group will visit a cowboy church, experience the thrill of a homemade water park, hike to the top of Lowe’s Lookout and partake in a community cookout. Our sponsor organization, YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2006.
