A WORD OF THANKS FROM CHELSEA – There are not enough words to say thank you to everyone who volunteered this past week with VBS! It was such an incredible week of ministry in many different forms. Whether you helped with set-up, you were around for one night or every night, THANK YOU! This week could not have happened without all of you. Thank you for always making St. Matthew’s a welcoming, hospitable, safe, and fun place for kids, but especially for making it true this past week.
TODAY IS SELFIE SUNDAY! – Selfie Sunday is another way to share the good news of being in the Christian community at St. Matthew’s. Simply take your own self portrait with your cell phone in and around St. Matthew’s (don’t worry, it is okay to use your phone today for picture purposes); then immediately post it on the St. Matthew’s Facebook page. Our Facebook page is www.facebook.com/stmbowie.
PRAYERS FOR GUATEMALA – On Saturday, July 1st, a team of adults from St. Matthew’s will be traveling to Guatemala for a week of partnership with Impacto Ministry. Please keep our team in prayer for safety, good health, and deep relationship building. Thank you for all of the ways that you have supported our trip so far; now it is just time to PRAY!
CHURCH ON THE MOVE – On Sunday, July 30th, worship is going to look a little different than usual. Join us for a short service and then get ready to take our worship on the move! There will be a variety of mission projects set-up for us to engage in as a congregation. Some of these projects will involve physical activity and leaving the building, and some can be done with little physical movement here at St. Matthew’s. Sign-up for the various projects will begin July 2nd, and on July 9th we will begin selling the “Church on the Move” t-shirts to help off-set the cost of materials. Any questions about this day, please contact Karen Hastings, Chelsea, or Daniel. Get ready to put your faith in action, and move!
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Then the King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” Matthew 25:37-40
