Our congregation has accepted the PC(USA)’s invitation to follow Jesus’
teachings in Matthew 25:31–46 by becoming active disciples and making
a difference in our community and the world.

As part of our Matthew 25 commitment, we pledge to embrace one or
more of these three areas of focus:
• Building congregational vitality by deepening and energizing our faith
and growing as joyful leaders and disciples actively engaged with our
community as we share the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
• Dismantling structural racism by fearlessly applying our faith to
advocate and break down the systems, practices and thinking that
underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice and oppression of people of colo
• Eradicating systemic poverty by acting on our beliefs and working
to change laws, policies, plans and structures in our society that
perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor.


To learn more and for ideas on how to get involved and do your vital part
as a member of a Matthew 25 church,

THE EVICTION MORATORIUM HAS ENDED!

DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE?

No matter where you live, there’s a program you can apply

for to help to pay rent and utilities.

All the payments go directly to the landlord or the utility company.

Find ERAP in your NC county.

ERAP assistance can be provided three months at a time, up to 12 months. Applicants will be recertified on a 3-month basis. – The recertification process and requirements are still to be determined. –

The household would need to prove that they still meet the income qualifications, are not receiving financial assistance from another program, and that are still experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19.
