3 STEUBENVILLE-2013 LOVE is the strongest force in the world. It is unconditional. It never fails. And, at its center, love is a choice. This summer, we will explore that our ability to love is only because God first loved us.(1 John 4:19). He chose us. Gods greatest desire is to be with us; not because of anything we can do for Him, but simply because He loves us. You are invited to experience a love that has no limits, no end, no strings attached. Come join us as we discover the reality that nothing can separate us from this love. We are CHOSEN
