Hanging of the Greens November 30

On Thursday evening, November 30th beginning at 5:30 pm, we will decorate the church for the Christmas season. This is a wonderful opportunity for families to join us as you will have the opportunity to make Advent wreaths you can bring home, place ornaments on the tree and get the church ready in many other ways for Christmas.

We will have provide a pizza dinner that evening as well. So make plans to join us on the November 30th to make the church festive for the Christmas season.

Youth Silent Auction October 22nd 4-7 pm

Due to multiple Homecoming conflicts, we have changed the date of the Silent Auction to Sunday October 22nd from 4-7pm.

Please let Stephanie (kerriganfamily6@gmail.com) or Sheila Lanzalotto (jointdirectorofyouthministry@gmail.com) know if you would like to help out or if you have items/services that you would like to donate. Thank you.

Funds raised at the auction will be used to support the fundraising efforts of the current 8th-12th graders hoping to attend the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston, TX this summer.

The youth of St. Matthew’s and St. Paul’s will be auctioning various services such as babysitting, lawn mowing, raking, snow shoveling, and a variety of other services. They will also assist with the planning and running of the auction, as this will benefit them directly, so please support their efforts.
