Matthew 25:37-40

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

We are 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.”

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