Steps along the way

First Presbyterian Church Lansdowne’s 12-member session voted in February of 2024 to become a Matthew 25 congregation. We are wrestling with what that means. Each member of our session is assigned to a committee (Property, Technology and Communications, Discipleship, Finance, Stewardship, Music and Worship, and Membership and Growth). Each committee is reviewing how to be Matthew 25; how to implement Matthew 25; how to apply Matthew 25; and how whatever is appropriate is Matthew 25. What we are finding is that there is simultaneously too much and not enough information available. We are finding lots of “where we want to be” but not much of “how to get there.” We hope we can document our steps in this journey toward becoming Matthew 25 and that it will facilitate those congregations who follow us in becoming Matthew 25.
