Saint Matthew Christian Church

Ephesians 4:12 Equipping the Saints for the Work of the Ministry




There are people in need all around us. In an effort to help SMCC will be doing Blessing Bags. The bags will be distributed beginning in November. If you wish to help, donations are needed of any of the following: gallon Ziploc bags, chap stick, packages of tissues, toothbrush, and toothpaste among other items. A complete list of ideas is in the foyer. Donations can be given to one of the deaconess.


Remember this facility belongs to all of us. God wants us to take excellent care of it. A lot of effect has been put into cleaning up the kitchen and choir room. Soon we will have new paint and other improvements. Let’s work together to keep God’s house clean. When you use any part of the church, please do your best to leave it decent and in order. Donations are needed for our big paint day to be announced. Please give donated items such as paint brushes, roller handles, and painter’s tape to Sister Kirkland.


SMCC is looking for Sunday school teachers. Is teaching perhaps your gift? Concerned as to whether you can do it like someone else, remember God made you unique and your teaching style will be unique to you. Training will be provided. Please see Sister Thompson if you are interested.
