What’s Happening

Bulletin Highlights

Robin Mark, internationally recognized as a Christian songwriter and worship leader will be  in concert at Saint Matthew’s on Sunday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $20.00 and may be purchased through the Parish Office or from Martha Reynolds.

VOLUNTEER  OPPORTUNITIES

Sunday morning worship services can’t take place without the help of people filling different roles.  We are currently looking for people to help with power point projection, reading the lessons, reading the prayers of the people, setting the altar, chalice bearers, ushers and counters.  We ask that you prayerfully consider sharing your talents with the worshipping community.  For more information speak to Fr. Jay.

Noonday Prayer & Lunch

On the third Tuesday of each month, we will gather for a short service of noonday prayer after which everyone is invited to have lunch together.  The prayer service is a wonderful way to spend your lunch worshipping the Lord.  Since the luncheon is an informal gathering, we ask that everyone bring his or her own lunch.  We will provide water, tea and coffee to drink.
