The Bible is full of references to caring for the poor and the weak, and coming to the aid of the defenseless. God takes special interest in and places a special hedge of protection around the widow, the orphan, and the stranger. James tells us that “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction” (James 1:27). Jesus tells us that when we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit the prisoner, we do it for him (Matthew 25:40).

At Lansdale Presbyterian we take God’s call to mercy ministry seriously. As important as the ministry of the word of God is, a word ministry that is not accompanied by a ministry of deeds is empty (James 2:15,16; 1 John 3:18). Aside from the general caring that takes place within our congregation we have organized ministries of mercy.

As important as the ministry of the word of God is, a word ministry that is not accompanied by a ministry of deeds is empty.
