Sunday 10/2 Worship at 11am

This Sunday, Jesus tells a parable of a vineyard and tenants who refuse to pay their rent. 
And he says, "The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people 
that produces the fruits of the kingdom." Matthew 21:43 

Then, regardless of how productive we are, he will feed us with the bread and wine of his forgiveness.
Pastor Paul Brndjar will preach and preside at an 11 o'clock service of Holy Communion. After the 
service, we will gather for refreshments, and there will be a Bible study on the letter to the Hebrews.

May God bless & nurture you.

Congregation news:

We are looking for congregation members to participate in hosting our table at the Hudson PRIDE festival next Sunday, 10/9, any times between noon and 6pm. We need to hear from people this week in order to finalize arrangements. Please contact Paul Bellan-Boyer or Stan Shih to signup or for further information.

We have opportunities to appoint new board members to the:
+ Barrow Manson Development Corporation (BMDC), which leases and manages the Barrow Mansion to serve the community; and
+ Puerto Rican Lutheran Housing Corporation, which operates the Villa Borinquen housing complex.
If you are interested in either of these organizations, please contact any member of the Congregation Council, or email the Council at StMatthewsJC-Council@yahoogroups.com.
