Open Meeting 
An open meeting has been scheduled for immediately after our 9:00 a.m. worship service on Sunday, June 3.  One reason for the meeting is to present information to the congregation regarding a proposed new electronic sign to replace our current sign on Milton Ave. A second reason for the meeting is to discuss changes that will have to be made to our church staffing in view of the impending retirement of our Staff Minister, Mr. Wentzel.  We have to decide if we need to engage a consulting firm to make recommendations regarding staffing or if we can come up with a plan by ourselves.  Please plan to attend this important meeting to receive information about what is happening here at St. Matthew's right now and to give your input about the future of our congregation.

Bible Study 
The Tuesday evening Bible study group, meeting from 6:30-7:30 p.m., is studying a text, “Connecting Sinai to Calvary,” a comprehensive guide to the Old Testament.  So much of the time before Christ is not known by the average Bible student.  This will be a great opportunity to connect God’s plan of salvation to the fulfillment in the New Testament.  Please come!
