For over 200 years, Presbyterians have been responding to the call of Jesus Christ, sharing the gospel with others and bearing witness to Christ’s saving love to the ends of the earth.
The Holy Spirit is still on the move, calling us to share what God is doing in the world.
To support this mission, we’ve partnered with the Viewpoint project – producer of high-quality social and educational documentaries for public television with the mission of positively impacting our communities and the world. Our educational segment focuses on the denomination’s Matthew 25 commitment to creating healthy, just communities and a radically inclusive world.
In May, households across the U.S. can view this segment via their local public broadcasting station. Your local PBS station will have the opportunity to show this documentary between broadcasts. A shorter version of the segment will also air across a myriad of cable networks like CNN and HLN. You can watch them here – just keep scrolling.
This documentary will help multiply the PC(USA)’s commitment to radical and fearless hospitality. We want to prepare and equip you as mid councils to engage this opportunity with your congregations and ministries.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Dr. Diane Givens Moffett, President and Executive Director
Presbyterian Mission Agency

Share and make aware!
It is always important to be welcoming as we extend the hospitality of Jesus. Our hope and goal is that your congregations receive new visitors as a result of this program. Here are some suggested ways to prepare:
- Post an announcement on your website, newsletter or social media page.
- Include the 30-second video to curate interest [watch here: https://vimeo.com/810186869]
Tips for your congregations:
- Make an announcement during service and meetings and include it in the bulletins and agendas so that all are aware of the video documentary and potential increase in visitors.
- Update all social media and webpages with easy-to-find addresses and contact information.
- Review and update external and internal signage.
- Review your hospitality preparations and ways to welcome visitors.
Based upon the work our churches are doing in eradicating systemic poverty and dismantling structural racism as part of the Matthew 25 movement, the PC(USA) was invited to be a part of a short-form documentary series titled Viewpoint.
