Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!
To all the brothers, sisters, and friends of Saint Matthew Church,
It has been much too long since we last gathered as a church. I wish to thank all of
the volunteers and ministers who enabled us to continue to celebrate the liturgy via
live streaming on Facebook, through Zoom and on our website.
Now we are ready to fulfill what Saint Paul the apostle wrote, “Forsake not the
gathering of yourselves together.” So are we called to gather again.
For the past few months, for the first time in the history of the church, we have
been denied the opportunity to gather for public worship. Now, some of us are
ready to gather. We are taking every precaution in our reopening to assure your
safety. Please read the guidelines found on our website and follow accordingly. We
can celebrate this liturgy that comes from Christ together as a community of faith!
May the celebration inspire you, lift you up and heal you!
This comes with love,
+Peter Elder Hickman
