WELCOME

There has never been an easier year…

…to worship on Thanksgiving Eve. Many of you are hunkered down and staying at home while we are live-streaming our service. That makes this year the perfect year to join your church family for an online service. We won’t have Communion, but we will have songs of thanksgiving and the Word that transforms our hearts and minds.

Please join us tonight at 7:00 either in-person or at www.facebook.com/stmatthewlemont

God has been blessing us this year. Let us pause to give Him thanks and praise!

In His Service,
Pastor Mike Gudgel

News from the Leadership Council

The Leadership Council is monitoring guidance from our governor regarding gathering in large groups. Please note that the limits from the governor and the Illinois Department of Public Health are not binding on religious services. This change took place in late May when the orders for worship services were changed from mandates to recommendations. Although our church does not have to limit the number of attendees, the Leadership Council sees wisdom in considering the IDPH’s guidance and will continually reevaluate and adjust as needed.

Please remember the following guidelines for attending in-person worship services:

  • Everyone must wear a mask inside the building.
  • Sit only in pews that are not roped off, and observe as much social distancing as possible.
  • No shaking hands or sharing the peace.

If you feel even the slightest bit under the weather, do not come to church, but join worship via our Facebook live-stream. This applies to even a common cold.

Please continue to pray for our state, our governor and our church. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to reach out to the church office or Chairman Jim Selle directly at ja.selle@yahoo.com.
