Bass Festival Parade
A big THANK YOU to all who helped build the float, donated candy/supplies, walked in the parade, and support our congregation's effort to be a Christ-like presence in our community!

Friendship Sunday - Outdoor Worship Service
A perfect opportunity to invite a friend or neighbor to come to church with you! The church will leave the building on Sunday, July 14th to worship outdoors. Worship will take place under the pavilion in Palmer Park followed by a church picnic. (Rt. 571/S. Maple Street) The St. Matthew Men's Club will be grilling to provide the main course...all other church members are asked to please bring a side or a dessert to pass. 
Please bring your own chairs (and an umbrella so it DOESN'T rain :)

Coins for Christ
The coins put into the offering plate each week helps to build our St. Matthew Scholarship Fund.
