This week St. Matthew's has been approached by hundreds of people asking for help. We have opened the doors of the church and are welcoming people into Bavendam Hall to receive storm relief supplies. WE NEED YOUR HELP to offer the hospitality of Christ to our neighbors in need. If you can come by the church for an hour or more to welcome, serve coffee and cookies, or help distribute supplies, please call Kim Aycox (mornings only 201.920.8615), Paul Ellis (732.397.2629) or Paul Bellan-Boyer (201.238.5987) or just come. Today and Friday 8am-8pm, and any time during the day on Saturday especially.
Our friend and sister Emily Narine departed this earth Wednesday morning, in the company of her family. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.
This Sunday we drink deep of the mystery of Christ. Pastor Hans Arnesen will preach and preside at a service of Holy communion.
chiefly by reaching out to us in mercy.
Grant us the fullness of your grace,
strengthen our trust in your promises,
and bring all the world to share in the treasures
that come through your Son,
Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
