September Communion Date Change

Due to the holiday, communion will NOT be served on September 4th.

Communion will be celebrated on September 11th during our Come Together service.

Come Together Sunday - September 11th

Please join us on Sunday, September 11th, after the service for our church picnic!

We will have live music, a bounce house, egg toss, snow-cone machine, popcorn, and a cookout.

Please bring a dish to pass and an item for our bake sale, which will offset the cost of renting the bounce house.

Gift Cards Needed for Back Bay Mission

As St. Matthew's work trip to Biloxi draws near, we are collecting Walmart gift cards to donate to Back Bay Mission. These gift cards will be used to purchase food for the food pantry, supplies for the Micah Day Center, or to support other client needs. St. Matthew will also benefit when the gift cards are purchased through the RaiseRight (formerly ShopwithScrip) gift card program. Edie DeBoard will be taking gift card orders on the first Sunday of the month. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Cards can be put in the offering plate on Sunday or dropped in the office mailbox.

Thank you,
Jeannine Adams (Mission Committee)

Prepare to be WOW'd!

We've heard that people aren't sure how they can sign up to be a part of the Sunday worship service. 

We've created a Worship Opportunities Worksheet (WOW) that contains all the volunteer opportunities through the end of 2022. You can sign up to read announcements, scripture, be a greeter, an usher, or an acolyte. All you need to do is click here and add your name to the appropriate date and opportunity. It's that simple! 

At the top of each column, you will see the name of a contact who can answer any questions about the specific opportunity. You can also contact the office. We'd love to have you be a part of an upcoming service!
