I hope that you are enjoying the beginning of this brand new year. I write to remind everyone that we’ll be enjoying an Epiphany Pancake breakfast at St. Matthew’s this Sunday. Breakfast will be served at 9 AM in the Parish Hall, with worship to follow at 10 AM.
Also, it’s not too late to sign up for the 2019 Bible Challenge. So far we have about a dozen folks signed on. Do let me know if you’d like to participate in the challenge!
Finally, please mark your calendar for our Annual Meeting to be held January 20 in the church, immediately following worship. We should be able to complete our business in about 30 minutes or so. Please do make every effort to attend—we’ve got some great news to share!
1) Craig’s Corner: “Santa is on his Way”
2) New feature on St. Matt’s App…send electronic Christmas cards to fellow parishioners
3) Christmas Eve Service at 5:30 PM, Christmas Day at 10 AM
