CHILDREN, FAMILY & 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. Now it is time for our youth and college students to take to the road as we travel 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.
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.
