Shenley Christian Fellowship is partnering with World Vision for a unique, week-long challenge from Monday 25th February to Sunday 3rd March 2019, to help us live out Jesus’ call. The project, called the “Matthew 25 Challenge”, is based on the book of Matthew 25:35-45. It is aimed at drawing our attention to the situation of many in the world who are less fortunate than ourselves, and to step out of our comfort zones and engage in Jesus’ love for “the least of these brothers and sisters of mine”.
For one week, we will focus on Matthew 25. You are invited to sign up to a daily text service and each day, receive text messages with the daily challenge, impactful videos and stories of children around the world, plus family prayer and discussion points.
Why not engage in this short, simple and profound project to help awaken our hearts to the needs of so many in this world, and to be reminded of what Jesus calls us to do for them? Will YOU take the Matthew 25 challenge?
To take part, please text MATTHEW25 to 88080. You will then receive a registration link back via text, which will take you to a form to complete your information, along with our church postcode MK5 7GZ.
Texts cost standard network rate or approx. 12p per text, depending on your provider.
