"Matthew 25: Part 2" - Monica Mark
Not long ago, Covenant became a Matthew 25 church. Join us for part 2 of this Bible study (from the Fall) in which we will read and reflect on the Gospel of Matthew (chapter 25), which is the inspiration for the PC(USA) Matthew 25 vision. With that scriptural grounding, we will also consider and discuss what it means for Covenant to be a Matthew 25 church.
