Matthew 25 Engagement Challenge
Dear Wellshire Presbyterian Friends,
PC(USA) is a Matthew 25 denomination. Wellshire is a Matthew 25 church. What does this mean? It means the invitation to discipleship is one of service and concern for “the least of these” whom Jesus identifies in Matthew 25:35-36. It means our faith is actively engaged in needs of the world.
The threefold goals of a Matthew 25 church are to build congregational vitality, dismantle structural racism, and end systemic poverty. These are loft goals! But small steps put together can go a long way. I invite you to join me, and our siblings in Christ throughout the Denver Presbytery in a Matthew 25 Engagement Challenge. They have challenged us, together, to engage in 2,021 hours of activity toward these goals during the month of May. If Wellshire achieved 500 hours, that would be less than ½ hour for each person on our e-mail list!
There are many opportunities for engagement – learning, planning, advocating, serving – all these things count. I’ve listed some Wellshire-specific events below. AND, you can record any activities you participate in outside of church – meetings, boards, volunteering, writing your representatives.
Be sure to record your activities at denpres.org/matthew-25-home.
Let’s join together in this journey of discipleship, that all the world may be blessed to be a blessing.
