Social Justice Lunch

Thank you social justice leaders and volunteers!  We are hosting a coffeehour - light lunch in your honor after the 10:30am service.

Along with those who participate in Project Home, Loaves and Fishes and the Blue House, we will also celebrate our daily social justices ministries (tutoring, caregiving, mentoring, etc)


Faith Forum: Simplicity

Join St. Matthew's parishioners Doug Franzen and Pat Peterson for dwelling in the word and discussion of the spiritual practice of simplicity.

Doug and Pat recently sold their family home and moved to a smaller apartment. It became an unexpected experience in which they found their lives becoming simpler and happier.

All are welcome!
