Doylestown Presbyterian Church: A Matthew 25 Congregation
Doylestown Presbyterian Church joins with other churches in our denomination as a Matthew 25 church to address the structural racism that harms so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ and the poverty that exists as a result. Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity and divides us as a human race. As Christians and as Presbyterians, we believe in the Image of God that lives equally within every human being. Through examining our history, both as a country and as a denomination, learning about ways to advocate for those afflicted by structural racism, engaging in educational opportunities, and forming diverse relationships within our community, we strive to fulfill God’s call to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:39) and unite all things in him (Ephesians 1:10).
We are excited to take the next steps in living as a Matthew 25 congregation as we present All Aboard Our Matthew 25 Journey with events planned throughout the year. We invite you to take a look at a full outline of all of the upcoming offerings.
On September 26, we welcomed Louise Davis, of the African American Historical and Cultural Society of Bucks County, who portrayed her 3rd Cousin Harriet Tubman during an incredible monologue. Davis came courtesy of the African American Historical and Cultural Society of Bucks County, and as part of our church’s efforts to live as a Matthew 25 congregation.
