Special Voters' Assembly Sunday, July 19  -  Signup Required

The Board of Elders has called for a Voters' Assembly on Sunday, July 19th at 9:30 a.m. in the Family Life Center.  The meeting is to consider extending a Divine Call to Charity Smith to to serve our congregation as Director of Family Life.  Our Elders believe we have identified, among a very limited pool of candidates, an individual who would make an excellent addition to our St. Matthew staff and church family.  Because it may be a challenge to reach a quorum of 74 for the meeting, we encourage all voting members who are able to attend.  All safety precautions apply (masks, social distancing, etc.).  Please sign up to attend here, or call church.

If time permits, two other conversations will be discussed: 1) a proposed amendment to the church's constitution to allow for the use of technology to enable members to digitally attend a Voters' Assembly even if they cannot attend in person; and 2) an update on the search for a new preschool director.

Worship in person

We gather for worship in the Family Life Center at our three regular services times: Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:45 a.m.  You need to sign up to attend church since we limit attendance to 80 people per service.

    • We are following careful practices of social distancing and sanitizing to provide a safe setting.

    • Watch worship from home: we still record weekly worship and post it online (see video below).  We will record the 5:00 p.m. service and hope to have it available around 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening.
