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.
It is a great pleasure to welcome MaryBeth Ingalls to SMBTS this morning. MaryBeth is Craft Marketer for the UMC's Red Bird Mission located in Beverly, Kentucky. She will be sharing with us her personal history as to how she came both to Jesus and to Red Bird. MaryBeth has brought crafts from Red Bird with her. They are displayed in Clendaniel Hall. Stop by and take a look. They make great gifts!

Please remember to bring a non-perishable food item with you each Sunday when you come to church. Place your donation in the red bin located in the narthex. We'll see to it that it gets to the Pyle Center where it will go to local people who are having trouble making ends meet. Thanks for the help!
