IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Regarding Associate Pastor Candidate

The Council, with the guidance of the Call Committee, is excited to present the congregation with a candidate for Associate Pastor. More information on the candidate will be forthcoming. In the meantime, mark your calendars for some important upcoming events.

On Saturday, April 27, 2024, there will be several "open house" opportunities to meet the candidate in 30-minute, small group sessions from 1:00 p.m. through 4:00 p.m. If you would like to attend one of these small group sessions, please sign-up by using this link.

In addition, there will be another open house from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in lieu of the Saturday service. Drop-ins are welcome at this session.

On Sunday, April 28, 2024, there will be one service at 10:30 a.m. during which the candidate will present the message. Following the 10:30 service, the congregational meeting that is required for the congregation to vote on extending a call will be held.

We are excited for you to get to know and appreciate the candidate as much as we have during the call process. Please plan to attend during this important weekend.

Thank you,

St. Matthew Church Council
