The Grants Team of the Synod of the Covenant have received approximately two dozen applications for the Matthew 25 Grants, and are currently reviewing them to determine which might be best candidates to receive the grants, up to $5,000.  The Synod has approximately $40,000 to distribute to the winners.  These grants are dedicated to support the ministry of congregations and other Presbyterian entities to strengthen congregational vitality, dismantle structural racism, and eradicate systemic poverty.  Winners will be announced by December 1, 2021.  For more information, contact
