A different kind of General Assembly
…What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? -- Micah 6:8b-d
Rhashell Hunter

The 224th General Assembly (2020) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) convenes on Saturday, June 20 and concludes on Saturday, June 27. Our General Assembly (G.A.) is both exhilarating and challenging, filled with concerns from across the church and filled with blessed servant leaders and Spirit-filled moments. Worship and music, speeches and awards, breakfasts and lunches all add to the excitement of this bi-annual event.

Become 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. Matthew 25 is a bold new vision and invitation from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) with over 460 congregations and mid councils that have already pledged to become a Matthew 25 church by working to build congregational vitality, dismantle structural racism and eradicate systemic poverty. We invite you to join us on this journey!
