Dinner Church

Sunday, March 4, 2018 - 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Sunday, March 4 at 5:30 pm
Once a season or so, our community gathers around the dinner table for an informal service of eucharist. At Dinner church, we eat and pray together at the same time, enjoying home cooked meals, passing dishes around the table family style, and trying out everyone's go-to pot luck dish. The food is eclectic and delicious, and there's a buzz of energy around this table--joy, reflection, and a deep welcome. 
On the first Sunday of March, we're holding our Lenten dinner church. We'll have a conversation about the scripture, with a bit of guidance from someone who has studied the story and can offer context. We'll pray with familiar prayers from the Book of Common Prayer, and sing simple hymns and chants to guitar, all in the parish hall--decked out for maximum coziness. 
You can help us plan by RSVPing by email or using our facebook event. While it helps us make sure there's enough chairs, you can always come without RSVPing. Questions? Contact Maggie at maggie@stmatthewsmn.org.

Theodicy Jazz Collective

Join Theodicy Jazz Collective, ensemble in residence at Washington National Cathedral, for an evening of inspired and soulful playing as we observe an ancient evening prayer known as 'vespers.' For centuries, people have asked God for guidance and care as day turns to night. Join us on Friday, February 16, 2018, as we create space for God to refresh, inspire, and call us to action. Enter into the songs, silence, and Scripture as you feel so moved. Breathe deep, be still, and know that you are beloved.
