being a matthew 25 congregation

Matthew 25 is an initiative of the Presbyterian Church (USA) rooted in Jesus’ admonition to his followers to care “for the least of these” (25:31-46). Being a Matthew 25 congregation means that CENTRALongmont is committed to acting boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned, or poor. 

 

All Matthew 25 congregations pledge to undertake ministries which, in their own communities, address one or more of the following: dismantling structural racism, eradicating systemic poverty, and building congregational vitality.

 

CENTRALongmont has ministries and mission initiatives addressing all three.
