ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR June 16, 2019

Welcome to St. Matthews By-the-Sea.    It is our hope that during our time of worship you will experience the presence of the risen Christ.     As a courtesy to other worshippers, please check now to make sure that your cell phones are turned off.      Thank you.

Upper Room devotionals for July/August are available in the narthex for you to take home.     Start or end your day with the inspiring testimonies and spiritual insights found in the Upper Room.

Today, Rev. Miller continues his final sermon series entitled "Saying Goodbye".      This morning's message is drawn from Jesus' final discourse with his disciples.      The series ends next Sunday and it will be the last sermon the pastor will preach at SMBTS before moving into retirement.

The Prayer Group invites all who believe in the power of prayer to join them in the Baker Parlor every Monday at 9am for an hour of praise and supplication.      What a great way to begin the work week.     Add your prayers to those of our Prayer Group.

The Quilters will gather in Clendaniel Hall tomorrow at 10am to continue their wonderful ministry.       Shirley is hoping for a big crowd.      Bring a covered dish for the noon lunch break.

Also o tomorrow's agenda is the fact that the Single Seniors will be dining at the Angler's Restaurant on Talbot Street in Ocean City.       Dinner is at 5pm followed by a 7pm boat cruise the cost of which is $4.     RSVP to Jill Brown or Wanda Bagarus.

The mid-month edition of Jammin' By-the-Sea occupies the fellowship hall his Friday from 4pm til 6pm.       Drop by for some of the best old time music around.

Clendaniel Hall's Freezer of Love needs restocking.      Soups, stews, and casseroles are in short supply.      Place your creations in the freezer and tag it with the name of the item and when it was made.       We give the food to those who stop by the church asking for help.

 Please remember to bring a  non-perishable food item with you each Sunday when you come to church.     We'll see to it that your donations are delivered to the Pyle Center where they'll be distributed to needy Sussex Countians.     Make sure to check the expiration dates printed on your contributions.

Save this date - July 15, 2019.     Our missionary family, the Zimmermans, will be visiting SMBTS that day.       We'll let you know the time when it's finalized.       Plan on hearing the takes from Nepal that Mark, Deidre, Zachary, and Benjamin will be bringing with them.
