In 2019, Westminster accepted the PC(USA)’s invitation to become Matthew 25 Church and follow Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 25:31–46, by becoming active disciples and making a difference in our community and the world.
As part of our Matthew 25 commitment, we pledge to embrace one or more of these three areas of focus:
- Building congregational vitality by deepening our faith and growing as joyful disciples actively engaged with our community, as we share the gospel in word and deed.
- Dismantling structural racism by fearlessly breaking down the systems, practices, and thinking that underlie discrimination, prejudice, and oppression of people of color.
- Eradicating systemic poverty by acting on our beliefs and working to change laws, policies, and structures that perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor.
As a Matthew 25 church, we are committed to pouring love, energy, and action into one or more of these three focuses. How would you identify “the least of these” in this season of Covid-19? What opportunities are open for Westminster to seek fullness of life for the least of these in our community? Email Pastor Ann to share your reflections.
