“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. …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.  Matthew 25:37, 41

Jesus invites us to participate in the Kingdom of God here and now. This is a call to us to act and to speak out for those whose voice cannot be heard. The way we attempt to bring about these social changes is to identify the issues that prevent us all from living as God’s children and to act with justice. The people at Catonsville Presbyterian work continuously to learn about and to lift up situations that need to be changed. The congregation is invited to participate in Adult Education classes concerning hunger issues and meet annually with the PC(USA) representative who works in Annapolis to raise awareness about issues such as gambling and assistance programs. A group of faithful activists from our church ventures to Capitol Hill to talk to our representatives and senators expressing our concern for those who might be forgotten. We have an “offering of letters” as issues surface and if so moved, people can sign or write letters to their representatives on these issues following church when they are still thinking about it. Each spring, the congregation makes a special Peacemaking Offering that is specifically used to help further peace efforts in the world. Social justice and mission is what we are called to do. At CPC, we focus on both because we see that they are intertwined and inseparable.
