CHILDREN, FAMILY AND YOUTH
HELP NEEDED! – This summer, with only one worship service in the Sanctuary, we are in need of an extra volunteer each week with Preschool Prayschool (2 yr. old-Kindergarten) and Faith for Me (1st-3rd grade) at the 10 a.m. service. Even if you can only volunteer for one Sunday all summer, please contact Chelsea at firstname.lastname@example.org!
KEEP ON PRAYING! – Our mission teams have felt your prayers while in DC on the youth mission trip, and in Guatemala. Today our youth and college students are on the road to Kentucky for a week of service with Appalachia Service Project. Keep our team in prayer from July 16-22nd, and again get ready for some incredible stories and pictures when we return. Our team members are:
Adults: Chelsea Spyres, Mary Adams, Bill Greaves, Ray Denmark, Allison Dunn and Caren Fitzgerald (Allison and Caren are friends of Chelsea’s from college).
Youth: Ally Huften, Zachary Kevala, Chantal Greaves, Ann-Therese Greaves, Asur Greaves, and Hannah Pierson
College: Sarah Behringer, Jordan Bailey, and Liam Greaves
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL STARTS NEXT WEEK – Ray Denmark’s 5-week Revelation class will begin on Sunday, July 23rd at 8:45 a.m. in room 125. All registered participants will need to get their textbooks from Ray or Isaac. If you are not able to get your books by the first meeting, please join us anyway as the first session will be an introduction to the course. Drop-ins are allowed but not encouraged. Please contact Ray or Isaac for more information.
CHURCH ON THE MOVE! – Sunday, July 30th, we will have our regular garden service and then a short service at 8:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. After this service, it will be time to take our worship on the GO! We will break up into various mission teams and have lots of projects, some requiring a little physical activity and others that just require you to come and sit as we assemble items in Fellowship Hall. T-shirts with the St. Matthew’s logo will be on sale starting TODAY for $12. The t-shirt sales will help to offset the cost of supplies for our day of service. Sign-up for projects in the narthex after service!
The projects for Church on the Move include:
- Installing a fence at a home in Old Bowie.
- Making sandwiches and brown bag lunches for Lighthouse Shelter in Annapolis.
- Delivering treats to our local police and fire stations.
- Cleaning up trash around Bowie High School.
- Passing out water bottles on Rt. 450.
- Cleaning up a yard for community member in Old Bowie.
- Singing and doing visits at Heartfields and Brookdale Senior Living.
