We all need support.

Our connection center is ready to listen.

Love Your Neighbor is a connection center that offers a practical path of hope
to under-resourced families in Hudsonville, Jenison, and Grandville.

We work to create communities where everyone is welcome,
we give and receive freely … and God brings about transformation.

Our Mission

Following Jesus Christ, who transforms lives, we equip our community to love, serve, and connect with dignity.

Collaboration

Working together, we value every contribution. (1 Corinthians 12)

Dignity

We believe every person bears God’s image, and therefore has value. (Genesis 1:26-27)

Grace

Assuming the best, we lead with extending favor. (2 Corinthians 1:12)

Openness

We value and seek other perspectives. (Philippians 2:3-4)

Diligence

We are persistent in all efforts to achieve our mission. (Hebrew 6:10-1)

Dignity

We all have needs to be filled and gifts to give, but shame and stigma often keep us from both. Our connection center works hard to be a safe place in our community, honoring every individual as a gift from God. There is no disgrace in asking for help.

Community

Community is the place where life happens. When we recognize that everyone has something to give and everyone has something they need, we can live in community that offers a place where everyone can thrive.

Transformation

We know that God transforms lives, and He often does it through community. Love Your Neighbor is about making space for God to bring about true transformation in hearts, lives, and families.
