St. Matthias 3rd Sunday after Pentecost, 2020 Devotion

Dear Siblings in Christ,

First, my apologies that this week’s video suddenly cuts off. Without warning, my cell phone gave me the “system storage full” warning and I was unable to record anything more. But, the sermon is all there. Feel free to refer to an earlier video for the prayers and benediction.
As we transition to a new mail system, you may receive duplicate emails until this is all sorted out. You should have received an invitation to subscribe to the St. Matthias newsletter. Our webmaster, Darren Olah, sent an email last week.
June 28th 9:30am we will meet in person in the St. Matthias parking lot. Bring a lawn chair. Wear a mask. PLEASE be a good steward of your body and health; if it seems too risky or you are feeling ill, it is best to stay home. We will record the services and post them online after the service for those who can’t join in person.
Also, an invitation from St. Matthew’s UCC:

Pavilion Guitar Jam and Kick Ball (Weather Permitting)

Every Tuesday Night in July starting at 7pm


Tell your friends.  We will stay distant, but we will be together.  Jamming.  Christian tunes, hymns, and probably some secular stuff, too.  Bring your family for a game of kick ball.  Bring a chair.  Bring a roasting stick and your own smore makin’s.  Bring some hot dogs and buns.  Bring a funny story to share.  Let’s have a fire and do it right.  You bring your food, you roast it, and handle it, and I’ll do the same with mine.  We can make these adjustments and still be together and be safe at the same time.


If you want to help, we’ll need a fire starter each week, wood, and I could use a kick ball, soft enough, Tom Brady style, so it won’t hurt the people we throw it at to make them out.


The church bathrooms will be open, but please remember to use a disinfecting wipe on the door handle after you exit.  Thank you.

May you be well till we meet again!

For Christian M. (Marines) and all service personnel.

Christ is Risen!
