NURSERY VOLUNTEER NEEDED – This fall we are going to be offering a class Faith for Me 1, 2, 3 for our 1st – 3rd graders to learn the same stories that are being taught in worship but on their age level, and to prepare them for the importance in participating in worship once they get to 4th grade. With this new class being offered we need a few weeks a month in the nursery covered. If you are able to volunteer for one or two weeks a month in the nursery, talk to Chelsea or email email@example.com.
Join us for the CROP Walk for Hunger on Sunday, October 2, 2016. – We will be walking to help poor and hungry neighbors near and far to develop a better life for themselves and their children. Look for the person with the CROP poster after worship to get your Donor Envelope. To sponsor a Walker, check the list of Walkers and connect with one of them.
Water Balloons for Crop – After the second service on Sunday, September 25, you can “buy” water balloons and choose to throw them at members of the youth group or staff! It’s this year’s Youth Challenge to raise money for the CROP Walk, so plan on buying several!
Celebration Service for Bishop LaTrelle Easterling: You’re invited to a service of celebration of the assignment of Bishop LaTrelle Easterling to the Baltimore-Washington Conference of The United Methodist Church on October 1, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, at First United Methodist Church, 6201 Belcrest Road, Hyattsville, MD, 20782. Reception to follow the service.
Flood Relief Donations – Ellicott City, Maryland and vast sections of Louisiana have been the sites of unprecedented flooding in the past several weeks. Information received from the Baltimore-Washington Conference indicates that monetary donations are the best way to help. If you would like to donate to either or both areas, make your check payable to St. Matthew’s UMC and enter Ellicott City or Louisiana on the Memo line. Place your check in the offering plate, drop it off in the church office or mail it to the church. If you have any questions you may firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
College Connection – We are collecting addresses for our college students. Our UMW and other groups in the church do a wonderful job keeping our college students connected with St. Matthew’s but we can’t do it without a physical mailing address! Parents of college students, please send their address to Laura Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sharon Heidenreich in the church office at email@example.com.
