A family service and Children’s Sermon on Sunday August 7 at 9:30 a.m. included the Blessing of the Backpacks as children and youth prepared to start another school year. Children of all ages brought their backpacks to church for a special blessing, and teachers and college students (adults, too!) took part, receiving a special blessing.
This event marked the end of the summer service schedule at St. Matt’s. On August 14, St. Matthew’s returned to two services at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., with breakfast at 9:00 a.m. between services and Sunday School registration for all ages at 9:30 a.m. Sunday School classes resume Sunday, August 21 at 9:30 a.m. St. Matthew’s is a vibrant, diverse, and welcoming faith community. and we welcome all to come worship Jesus Christ in community with us.
