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 Racism and Poverty. If you would like to get involved to help address these issues, please reach out to Jennifer Haratsaris to learn about the active working groups and meeting times for these initiatives. To read articles and essays created by these working groups, please go to our new blog-like page CENTRALPosts for the latest content.
