This Week's Sermons...
Thanksgiving Services: Thanksgiving Eve, 6:30 p.m. November 25th
                                   Thanksgiving Day, 9:30 a.m. November 26th

Sermon Text--Psalm 103:1-5
Sermon Theme--"Praise The Lord, O My Soul"
               I.  Praise him for everything he's given you
                II.  Praise him with everything you've got
   Don't forget!  From little on we hear those words: Don't forget.  Still...we forget.  We forget appointments, events, occasions, what we needed from the store, what we went downstairs for.  We forget.  Most of the time it's OK to forget.  But when it comes to giving thanks to God it is not OK to forget.  King David knew that and wrote a psalm in which he reminded himself--and us--to praise the Lord. 

Come join us at St. Matthew's for our Thanksgiving services, and be reminded to Praise the Lord for everything he has given us and with everything you have got.

Sunday, November 29th:

Sermon Text--Psalm 122
Sermon Theme--Let's Go To God's House With Joy
                   I.  Joy that sees the glory of God's house
                  II.  Joy that seeks the good of God's house
Do I have to?  Did you ever ask that question as a kid or hear it from your kids?  Some things in life are "have tos."  Cleaning the garage, picking up your room, making your bed, going to school, doing homework.  All those chores can make us ask: "Do I have to?"  How about going to church?  Is that a have to for you?  It wasn't for the Psalm writer.  In Psalm 122 the psalm writer expresses his joy when asked to go to the house of the Lord. 

Join us this Sunday, as we begin a new church year, to be encouraged to change your going to church "have to" into a going to church "want to!"
