We Are a Matthew 25 Church

The Wellshire Session has voted to join our PC(USA) denomination’s initiative and become a “Matthew 25 Church.”

Matthew 25 recalls the story of the sheep and the goats, where the king reminds those who have asked when they served him, “just as you did it to one of the least of these…you did it to me.” Matthew 25 churches answer the call to look outside of themselves, to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, care for the sick, visit the prisoner.

A Note from Diversity Task Force: Critical Race Theory

A Note from Diversity Task Force: Critical Race Theory

Matthew 25 banner
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”
Matthew 25:35-36

Diversity Task Force
The diversity task force, continues it’s commitment to dismantling structural racism through education and presents another word with its definition to aid in our ongoing discussions about racism:

Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been in the news lately and may be hard to understand just what it is. Developed by scholars in the 1970’s and 80’s in response to their concern about a lack of racial progress following the civil rights movements of the 60’s. CRT is a way of thinking about American history through the lens of racism. Central tenets of CRT are that race is a socially constructed concept and that racism is systemic in this nation’s institutions and they function to maintain the dominance of white people in society.
