Sunday 12/9 11am worship

Friday 12/7 2pm-8pm JC Fridays at St. Matthew's: Stained glass treasure hunts, tours of the church and historic Barrow Mansion, Family game night starting at 6pm.

Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Luke 3:5-6

A voice crying in the wilderness, John the Baptist preaches repentance, and quotes the prophet Isaiah's hope for a world which is easier, which works better, where God's people are ruled not by political machinations, not by economic oppressors, not by violence, but by righteousness. A world we still hope for.

Like the Advent calendar pictured above, as a people we are counting down the days until God's reign of justice and peace fills the world. On Sunday we share God's hope, God's Word, God's food, with Pastor Hans Arnesen leading a service of Holy communion starting at 11am.

I thank my God every time I remember you.
Philippians 1:3
