New Partnerships Announced!
The Mission Team and the Vestry worked together in the spring of 2019 to reimagine the work God is calling us to do at St. Matthew’s.
We are excited to announce that for the year 2019, St. Matthew’s is partnering with three agencies: Circle of Care, Open Door Shelter and HomeFront. In focusing our efforts toward these three different organizations, we believe we will grow into meaningful relationships and do our part to help build the Kingdom of God.
Representatives from each organization will visit us in the fall so you will have the opportunity to learn more about the good work these groups do. You will also be hearing more about how you can get involved! If as you read about an agency, you feel called to join a team, contact Jen Kepner.
We are so excited about these new partnerships and hope you will find a way to become involved!
