Serve

 


"...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





These are the values
by which we live
as disciples of Jesus Christ
in this community of faith




"...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."
