What is 40 Days of Love?
40 Day of Love is a completely new church-wide, six week campaign featuring a group-based DVD study series taught by Pastor Rick Warren; daily devotional readings from the book, “The Relationship Principles of Jesus”, and an accompanying series of weekend messages.
Is 40 Days of Love something I can bring my friends who don’t go to Church?
YES! 40 Days of Love is focused on how to love as Jesus did, so it will have an impact on everyone, whether you’re a seeker, a stumbler or a saint! We all have a desire for deeper, more authentic relationships, so this is a perfect study to invite any friend to join. Discussions on topics such as forgiveness, selflessness, and kindness will hit at the heart of what we all need to renew and strengthen our relationships.
I want to participate and learn to grow in my relationships! What do I do next?
