St. Matthew UCC Service and Donation Opportunity Calendar
by Rob Neufelder
St. Matthew United Church of Christ strives to share the love of Jesus Christ with all of God’s children. Imitating the ministry of Jesus, we seek to minister in practical ways to assist the poor and homeless, the elderly and the infirmed, the grieving and the lonely, the powerless and the forgotten. In serving God’s people, St. Matthew UCC helps both locally and globally, wherever God calls to go; partners with community, ecumenical and UCC-related ministries that reflect the goals of St. Matthew UCC; engages in ministry unique to our vision; and offers assistance appropriate to the situation, whether through money, labor or leadership.
You will find St. Matthew UCC folks cooking meals for the homeless and leading songs for the elderly, building homes in Guatemala and repairing homes in Biloxi, pushing shopping carts for the hungry in the 4th of July parade and delivering Christmas gifts to immigrants. We serve on area boards and initiate new ministries in our community. Our desire is to see God’s love making a difference in our world.
