This past Sunday, our beloved Reverend Johns spoke to us about the Scripture found in Matthew 25:31-46 (click this link if you’d like to read this Scripture https://bit.ly/3wT3J7N). This sermon is among Reverend Johns’ very finest and can be enjoyed at this link https://youtu.be/mrXyRJHrrPE.
This Scripture referred to above includes the famous words of Christ that are,
“Then the king will say to those at his right hand,
‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for 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.’
“Then the righteous will answer him,
‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’
“And the king will answer them,
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'”
In The Spirit of this Scripture – this call from our Lord to bless others with the very necessities of life that many of us take for granted: food, clothing, and genuine, heartfelt love and care – we ask that you please, love others as you love yourself if you have these blessings in your life; please, bless others with these things. In doing so, you are loving and serving Christ Himself.
This holiday season, one way that we are meeting such needs of others in our community, as spoken of by Christ, is by asking for donations of food and or money to give to the Jamestown Food Pantry. Here’s more information about this:
We are accepting donations of non-perishable foods (canned goods, bags of rice, canisters of oats, juice, etc.) from November 01, 2021 through Thanksgiving! This food, as well as any financial donations for this cause (see below), will be donated to our local Jamestown food pantry that assists those in need during this holiday season (and the rest of the year).
Drop-off food at our Church any Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and during our Thanksgiving Eve Service on Wednesday, November 24, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. If you can’t make it during those times, please feel free to message us here through our page to arrange drop-off or pick-up at another time or location.
To donate financially, send a check – being sure to put “Food Pantry” in the “For” – area to:
Adamsville Presbyterian Church
P.O. Box 37
Adamsville, PA 16110
If you are in need of food this holiday season or at any time of the year, please feel free to contact us or one of the food pantries in our county listed at this link https://www.ctrforfamilyservices.org/progr…/food-pantries/.
It is our heartfelt prayer and hope that each person reading this will take a few moments of time today to think about the importance of the words of Matthew 25:31-46 and how we can all bless others as we are blessed, or reach out to receive such blessings if in need.
Have a wonderful day, friends!
