What is a Matthew 25 church?

FUPC is working to become a Matthew 25 church. What does that mean?

Read about the PCUSA Matthew 25 initiative.

These are the three important focuses from Matthew 25:

  • Building congregational vitality by challenging people and congregations 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.

Please pray about how you and the church can take action in this direction.

We warmly extend God’s own welcome and ours as well to people of all races, nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, abilities, economic situations, marital conditions, sexual orientations, and political and theological viewpoints.
