The Body of Christ sharing the Love of Christ

Join us as we serve our city!
 

OUR DESIRE

 
Over the course of the last several years there has been a growing desire in the hearts of Christ Followers in Norfolk to come together with other Believers to do something intentional and meaningful as the larger Body of Christ. To Norfolk With Love is designed to do just that. TNWL is a community-wide day of service where followers of Jesus from every denomination and creed join together to serve side-by-side to demonstrate the love of Christ to our city. Our dream is that as we momentarily lay down some of our differences and take up loving projects of all kinds around the city, we can show our community and the world a better way. Will you join us?
 
 
 
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
 
 John 13.34-35
