Right Side Up
The Matthew 25 Challenge is a week-long discipleship experience that invites families and individuals out of their comfort zones through daily sacrificial challenges - bringing to life Jesus’ call in Matthew 25. Through daily sacrificial challenges, your church will engage in God’s love for “the least of these brothers and sisters” of ours.
You might have missed the Matthew 25 Challenge week hosted by Danielle Strickland that you heard about on the Right Side Up podcast, but it’s not too late to participate. The Matthew 25 Challenge is amazing when done in community, and you can bring this experience to your whole church!
For one week, your church will focus on one passage in Matthew 25. They’ll receive text messages throughout the week, including a daily challenge, impactful stories of children around the world, prayer and discussion points for families, and engaging videos and family activities too! It will open your eyes to the realities many people living in poverty face every day—and encourage them to respond with the love of Jesus.
