Christmas @ St. Matthew's

So many exciting things happening here at St. Matthew's during the Advent and Christmas Season.  As you are looking for your place to belong and find community, you can find your place here in this place! Also during our times of worship each Sunday we will be joining other churches as we talk about the " Advent Conspiracy."  In short, this season of love and mercy becomes a time of business and worry.  What if we turned it upside down?  What would it look like if we truly focused on the reason for the Season?  This season we will "Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, and Love All."  

Be sure to join us!  Here is our schedule of events!
