ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL STARTS TODAY – Ray Denmark’s 5-week Revelation class will begin at 8:45 a.m. in room 125. All registered participants will need to get their textbooks from Ray or Isaac. If you have not yet received your book, join us anyway as the first session will be used as an introduction to the course. Drop-ins are allowed but not encouraged. Please contact Ray or Isaac for more information.
CHURCH ON THE MOVE! – Next 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 are on sale 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.
