January 25th | 6am-6pm | SMLC Gardenside Room
On Saturday, January 25, we are holding a prayer vigil from 6am until 6pm in the Gardenside room. Partners in mission and friends of Saint Matthew are invited to sign up to pray for 30 minute time slots so that we can be in continuous prayer for 12 hours for the future that God has in store for Saint Matthew. We invite you to pray for the Call Committee, for the Lead Pastor God is preparing to serve at Saint Matthew, and for the growth and impact of our ministry in the community and around the world.
Join us as we pray into a new future for Saint Matthew!
February 8 | 9am-12pm | SMLC Teen Center
All life is a threshold. We move from season to season, experiencing changes both outward and inward. We can navigate life’s thresholds well when we move through them with intention. Join us for a retreat February 8th to spend time with God together and to reflect on where you have come from, where you are going, and what it looks like to root in the present.
We are so excited to have Kristen Kludt; author, speaker and creator of the popular Field Guides for the Way kits, coming to guest speak and guide us through a morning of reflection and spiritual practice. She speaks with passion and gentleness, creating safe spaces for groups to have honest, compelling conversation and to dive into spiritual practice together. Kristen believes we learn best through stories and practice and guides based on this belief.
Tickets are $15 if you pre-register, $20 at the door.
You will also have the option to pre-order your own Field Guides for the Way kit for $45, get one at the event for $50, or order online afterward for $59.
