EASTER FLOWERS:

As we prepare to celebrate Easter Sunday, we invite you to participate in beautifying the church with Easter Flowers. If you wish to contribute, please sign up on the bulletin board located across from the kitchen. You will find two separate lists: one for memorial dedications and another to honor someone special (please print legibly). Your generosity will be acknowledged in the Easter Bulletin alongside the listing of names. Kindly note that a minimum donation of $25 per flower is appreciated to support this initiative. Thank you for your contribution.

Our Prayer for Spiritual Growth, said aloud together every worship service

Gracious Father, we ask spiritual growth for ourselves, our families and friends, and especially for our family St. Matthew's. Grant us growth in understanding and willingness to be your Body in this world. Empower us to live the mission of Christ: to preach, teach, heal and make disciples. In joyful thanksgiving for the blessing of your presence in our lives, compel us to share you with everyone we meet. May our numbers increase, our commitment deepen, our lives be joyfully yours. Make us a God-centered people.

In Christ's name we pray. Amen.
