WELCOME

St. Matthew Lemont – Vacation Bible School 2020 – CANCELED

Due to the pandemic, we will no longer hold Vacation Bible School during the week of June 8-12, 2020. We are in the process of determining how to proceed, whether with an online VBS or another option. Please check back on this page for more information in the coming weeks.

                                                                                                                                                                   

What a blessing it was to share in the gift of Holy Communion together last Sunday, May 24th! We always hear that the church is not just a building – and that is true – but there was definitely something special about coming together again in our church building. We will celebrate Communion again in person one week from this Sunday, June 7.

Sharing in the sacrament is something we have all missed on a spiritual level. And on a human level, it was just a joy to see so many friends from the church family reconnecting.

We are hopeful that we will soon be back together again for regular worship every weekend! Restrictions are starting to ease, and the Council is discussing what we need to do to make this safely happen. We believe prayers are being answered, but please continue to pray for St. Matthew. We are following the guidelines laid out by our lawmakers, but we know that it is God who is really in control.

We ask you to also continue supporting the ministry of the church with your offerings and to continue to join in our weekly live-stream worship. We will, hopefully, see you back at St. Matthew for Communion on June 7.

Watch for updates in the coming weeks as we work toward a joyful return to St. Matthew!
