The third annual Matthew 25:35 Concert is 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4. at Grace United Methodist Church in Manassas.

The concert was founded by two students, Steven Field, a sophomore at Christopher Newport University, and Michelle Hettmann, a sophomore at Virginia Tech University.
 The focus of this year's concert is jail and prison ministries, Field said.  The focus is taking from the latter part of the Bible book of Matthew chapter 25 verse 35 which reads, "For I was in prison and you came to visit me."  

Spectators are urged to bring items to donate to All God's Children, a camp for children with incarcerated parents and Kairos Prison Ministries

Sought items for the camp are:

-new sleeping bags (solid colors)
-flat sheets, no fitted sheets (solid colors, no characters)
-pillowcases-shower totes with handles

Sought items for Kairos prison ministers who bake cookies for the inmates are:
-brown sugar
-chocolate chips
Monetary donations for the two causes and the Prince William County Adult Detention Center will also be collected at the concert which will feature music from local performers and those from all across Virginia.
