Matthew 25 Initiative

We’ve accepted the PCUSA invitation to become a Matthew 25 church! 

By doing so we show our understanding that we are “saved to serve” and commit to be actively engaged in the world. Our outreach is a direct response to the good news of Jesus and a faithful expression of what it means to be Christ’s disciples in this time and place. 

Jesus calls us to serve with and for “the least of these” — not as a group to be pitied, but as people who are deeply loved by Jesus. 

We embrace the focuses of the PCUSA Matthew 25 initiative - find out more here on our Missions page.

EWPC Joins one parish one prisoner

Our OPOP Team is being commissioned during worship on June 2. They will begin to do the work of building a trusting relationship with our incarcerated friend.  Eventually the congregation will be introduced to this friend and join the circle of care in appropriate ways. 

Thank you for covering this ministry with prayer!  

And because this is a congregational ministry we'd like to invite you to take a survey as we begin. It takes only 5 minutes. 

We believe in transformation. Not just for those who've been locked up, but for faith communities as well. 

Along with our incarcerated participants, we’re taking a "mugshot" of who our congregation is right now, before we begin One Parish One Prisoner — answering these questions collectively, anonymously. 

After our two-year journey, we’ll take the survey again to help reflect on our learning and transformation. 

Stay tuned to our Missions page for more information to come.
