Sunday 12/2 - Advent

Saturday 12/1 2pm-3:30pm Eating for Energy: Health Coach Kirsi Paalanen offers a workshop to help gain an abundance of energy and vitality through better eating - especially important in the holiday season. Donation to benefit St. Matthew's.

To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul (Psalm 25:1).

Entering the season of Advent, we await the coming of God into the world at Christmas. It's a season of preparation, not for the coming winter, not for holiday shopping and decorating and cooking, but to receive and share God's love.

At St. Matthew's, we will light the first Advent candle, and share God's love in bread and wine. Pastor Hans Arnesen will preach and preside at a service of Holy Communion. Coffee hour and Bible study following the service,

God's compassion is everlasting.
