ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR February 10, 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.
If you've been away from church the last couple of weeks, you many the have heard the good news that Bishop Peggy Johnson has appointed the Reverend Michael Hurley to be the new pastor of St. Matthews By-the-Sea as of July 1, 2019 when Reverend Miller will retire. Mike is an excellent pastor. We believe this is a great appointment and wish him all the best.
This morning, Rev. Miller begins his winter sermon series entitled "Bad Guys". The series will look at five Biblical villains and what we can learn from them. Next week - Divas, the rich man who ignored the beggar Lazarus.

A big thanks to all those who contributed soup for the Pyle Center last "Souper Sunday". Bur remember, there are people in the area who need food every day and not just one. So make it a habit to bring a non-perishable food item with you to church every Sunday. There are bins in the narthex to receive your donations.
