What is Matthew 25?
Matthew 25 is an initiative of the PC(USA) that serves to focus and energize existing and future ministries of participating congregations. It is inspired by the parable of the sheep and goats from Matthew 25: 31-46, where Jesus made it clear that what we do matters to God and how we treat others is important to God. It has three primary goals:

Building Congregational Vitality

Dismantling Structural Racism

Eradicating Systemic Poverty

Building Congregational Vitality by challenging members and friends in our congregation to deepen their faith and get actively and joyfully engaged with their community and the world.
Dismantling Structural Racism by advocating and acting to break down the systems, practices, and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice, and oppression of people of color.
Eradicating Systemic Poverty by working to change laws, policies, plans, and structures in our society that perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor.
