When we hear the word RICH, we often think about money and wealth. In the first-century church RICH meant no-strings-attached generosity. That should also be a hallmark of the twenty-first-century church too. The apostle, Paul, told Timothy, “Command those who are rich in this present world...to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” So let’s Be Rich! Let’s do more and give more than ever before! Hope to see you Sunday. Bring a Bible and bring a friend.
St. Matthew’s Be Rich Campaign Begins Sunday!
Sunday begins our first ever Be Rich Campaign! The goal of this campaign is for our church and our individual selves to become more generous with the blessings God has given us. During these five weeks we will strive to be more generous with our time, our food, and our money.
Pizza with the Pastor this Sunday!
If you are considering membership at St. Matthew’s Church, the first step is to attend Pizza with the Pastor where you learn more about the church and review expectations regarding membership. The Pizza with the Pastor will take place on Sunday, October 19th, at 5:15 p.m. at Pastor Gordon & Leigh Ann’s home (located beside the church at 16 Little Falls Lane). Childcare is available at the church. If you are interested in attending, please complete and return the bulletin tear-off, call the office at 784-3176, or email us at email@example.com.
Open Mic Night
Mark your calendar for October 25th @ 6:30 pm for Open Mic Night. Ever want to sing a solo, a duet, a trio...or whatever...you just want to sing? Now is your chance!
