We Are A Matthew 25 Church
The Gospel of Matthew provides for us a parable from Jesus about what it means to be faithful servants in our earthly lives. When we feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, provide clothes and blankets to those without, tend to the sick and lonely, and when we minister to those in prison -- we are embodying Christ to a hurting world and demonstrating what God's Kingdom looks like.
Current Mission Initiatives
Here are some current or critical mission opportunities
Blessing Cards for Diaper Bundles
Bundles of Hope Diaper Ministry needs volunteers to handwrite blessing cards that are given to each person who receives diapers from our church. Bundles of Hope will provide the cards and the verbiage — the volunteers provide their time and handwriting! If you can help, please contact the church office at 205-822-0910!
Church of the Reconciler (COTR) will train volunteers to help people access their critical government documents. If you feel a little overwhelmed by the thought of that, just imagine how a homeless person who has lost all their forms of ID would feel. COTR journeys with people to navigate the difficulties of life, and it’s fun to do it together, and they’ll teach you how to help. For more information on the Church of the Reconciler and the many ways to get involved, visit the COTR church website or the COTR Facebook page.
“One of the principal rules of religion is, to lose no occasion of serving God. And, since he is invisible to our eyes, we are to serve him in our neighbour; which he receives as if done to himself in person, standing visibly before us.”
