Families of Kinder, 1st, and 2nd graders! Backpack Blessing will be TOMORROW at the beginning of worship. We will bless the backpacks and school supplies we've collected to send to Points of Light. We will also say a blessing over our early elementary students and their own backpacks, afterwards they can join their class in the Green Classroom.

This year for our mission outreach project during VBS, we collected school supplies for children who are served by Points of Light in Oakland, and we need your help to finish it strong! Our goal is to collect 100 backpacks filled with school supplies, and we've made an Amazon list to make purchasing easier! Get the Amazon list at saintmatthew.org or in the most recent eNews.

Peace is proving you care more about each other than winning an argument. When someone or something makes you mad, it is so easy to say or do the first thing that comes to mind. It takes a lot more strength to bite your tongue and choose not to fight. Sometimes it even helps to actually walk away so that you don’t say or do something you’ll regret later.

At bedtime, read Genesis 26:1-22; 26-31. Pray that God will show you this week when to care about others by walking away from a fight. https://bit.ly/3lPD5Wd

MULTI-DENOMINATIONAL
MULTI-GENERATIONAL
MULTI-CULTURAL

As a community of faith and individual followers of Jesus Christ, we are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our Lutheran heritage is important as a theological (versus cultural) anchor to our past and guide to our future. At the same time, we want to be a missionary, neighborhood church that's making a world of difference. The Holy Spirit has led the ELCA to have full ecumenical partnerships with several other Christian denominations, and our pastors, staff, and leadership embrace the Christian traditions and expressions of these partnerships.

We seek to welcome young families, millennials, and people of our surrounding community while preserving our Lutheran heritage and those worship styles valued by the range of people attending Saint Matthew. Saint Matthew values its oldest members and always wants to include its youngest disciples in every dimension of our life and ministry together. These values compel us always to evaluate our worship, our community life, and how our proclamation and demonstration of the Christian faith affects our oldest and youngest members together.

We strive to reflect the diversity of the wider neighborhood in which we live and minister. Jesus removed every dividing wall; the Good News of Jesus Christ insists that no Christian community be segregated by race, culture, socio-economic status, or any other humanly-devised barrier or division.
