Your church is invited to become a Matthew 25 church
What is a Matthew 25 church?
Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities. Convicted by this passage, both the 222nd and 223rd General Assemblies (2016 and 2018) exhorted the PC(USA) to act boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor.
How the vision unites all Presbyterians
By accepting the Matthew 25 invitation, you can help our denomination become a more relevant presence in the world. We recognize Christ’s urgent call to be a church of action, where God’s love, justice and mercy shine forth and are contagious. And we rejoice how our re-energized faith can unite all Presbyterians for a common and holy purpose: our common identity to do mission.
The Presbytery of Boston has voted to become a Matthew 25 Presbytery
At our December Presbytery meeting, we voted to become a Matthew 25 Mid Council, and since then several congregations have voted to be Matthew 25 congregations. One of our goals is at least 20% of our churches signing on as well. We celebrate KCB, Church of the Covenant, Roxbury, and Burlington for being the first churches in the Presbytery to do so! Check the resources available at the Presbyterian Mission Agency's website by clicking here, and consider becoming the next Presbytery of Boston congregation to commit to the Matthew 25 vision.
