For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. . . And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it unto me”.
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
St. Matthew’s Outreach Ministry offers interested volunteers opportunities to serve our community and beyond. A sampling of ongoing projects include: Backpack program to feed local hungry school kids; support of the Shanklin Center for elderly women, food pantry collection for Covenant House; Angel Tree and other programs supporting youths during the holidays, and American Red Cross blood drives.
Living through Giving
We believe that people want to make a difference in our Church, our community, and the world, and, when given the opportunity will respond in a spirit of thanksgiving, with generosity.
St. Matthews’s Stewardship Program focuses on this spirit of thanksgiving for our blessings. The response to this thanksgiving is the giving of time, talent and treasure. St. Matthew’s provides a year-round theological education effort in which we are invited to engage in Scripture, reflect on how God is working in our lives, and consider what God is calling each of us to do with the gifts He has given.
