Safeguarding God's People

June 11, 8:30 AM - Noon

Do you represent Saint Matthew’s Episcopal Church?  Do you work with our children or youth?  Are you a Eucharistic Visitor?  Or do you think you might become involved?  If so, Safe Church training is for you. Our diocese requires this of parishioners who minister to and teach others.

Come learn about the practices that guide us in respecting the dignity of every human being.  Class will be held at St. Matthews on Saturday, June 11, from 8:30 AM – Noon.

No fee will be charged, but pre-registration is required. Register by emailing Kay Henderson at her new email address:  Send your name and contact information.  If email is a problem, call her and leave a message at 864-574-4462, with a call back phone number.

Space will be limited.  Please register early before the program is announced in the diocese newsletter.

Fellowship Class

This class, led by Andy Donnan, begins April 24 in the Conference Room. Using the Bible as our guide we'll discuss ways to navigate life's ups and downs. We'll laugh and encourage one another. All adults are invited.

"I am the vine you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5
