Outreach Opportunities

At St. Matthew’s we seek to obey God’s command to love our neighbor as ourselves and in the process rejuvenate our own souls by helping others. We are involved in a number of different outreach endeavors and are always seeking anyone who would like to join our cause. If you are interested in more information about any of the outreach opportunities contact us. Hope to see you soon and God be with you.

Christmas Alternative Giving

At Christmas, St. Matthew’s sponsors various activities to honor a family member or a friend with an “alternative gift”. Instead of buying a traditional gift for someone who doesn’t need or want more “stuff”, you can make a gift in that person’s name to one of the various programs above. Past options have also included Fair Trade coffee, teas, cocoa and chocolate sold through the holidays. Stop by the alternative giving table in the church foyer in December for details.
