Strong Roots for Tender Shoots

Young families of St. Matthew Church will soon be receiving something special in the mail! Every six months until they're 4 years old, children who are baptized at St. Matthew will be sent a small book or music CD to help them learn about Jesus' great love for them. Included in each mailing is a flyer for the parents with helpful tips on parenting for the age of their child.

We start training our children from early on about what foods to eat, how to use good manners, what to do to stay safe, and so on, because we know if we repeat those lessons early and often, that's how they'll learn. Certainly we want to do the same with the most important knowledge of all, the one thing that will affect our children's eternity! Regular church attendance, family devotions and prayers, and frequent sharing of Bible stories and songs are some great ways to accomplish this. "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

Please keep these families in your prayers, that they will be strengthened and encouraged in the great responsibility and privilege of caring for these little ones!


Sunday School

Sunday School meets every Sunday morning following the sermon.

Sunday School is geared for children in Pre-K through 6th grade.

As always, Sunday school teachers and children will be dismissed before the closing prayer
and final hymn of each Sunday Worship Service.

For more information about Sunday School, click HERE.


Youth Group

Youth Group (high school age children - 9th grade and up) meets every Wednesday evening at 7:15pm.
 
 
 
 
St. Matthew Church offers Kwik Trip Scrip Gift Cards
as a way to raise funds for our Youth Group.

Youth Group will receive $10. The money you pay for the card is the

Friends In Deed

When tragedy strikes in the form of a tornado, fire or flood, we as a church want to be able
to assist not just members, but everyone who needs help in our community, as best as we
are able. The primary purpose of the group is to provide manpower in helping families
during times of physical need.

There are many ways in which we could help. We could provide a cooked meal, help clean up
fallen trees or board up windows after a storm. These are just a few examples. Our goal is to
show Monroe County that St. Matthew Church cares and is willing to help ease their sudden burden.

If you are interested in being on the volunteer list, please contact Dale Chitwood at (608) 378-3057 or dalechitwd@centurytel.net.


Greeter and Treater Program

GREETERS: We are looking for individuals who would be interested in serving as Sunday
Morning Greeters. The job is pretty simple - hand out bulletins and say a warm welcome as people
come to worship.

TREATERS: For those that enjoy something sweet in the morning, we are looking for Sunday
Morning Treat Bringers.

SUGGESTION: For those of you who love to bake, consider baking treats ahead of time and freezing.
If you would like to contribute treats, just wrap the container tightly, label and place in one of the freezers in the kitchen.

We could use some more cookies for our Sunday morning treats.
Please bring your packaged cookies on Sunday morning, or bring something we could freeze for use at a later date.

A FRIENDLY REMINDER:
To help keep our facility stay clean, please exercise caution and discretion when bringing refreshments
into the sanctuary. Let's not put into practice the words of Psalm 23:5: "My cup runneth over"!


Long Range Planning Committee

Next Meeting: TBD

Contact Person: Eric Prise

Online Security

From Linda P., St. Matthew Church Webmaster

We are members of the Oakdale Electric Cooperative, and receive their monthly Wisconsin Energy Cooperative News magazine. An article in the September 2014 edition caught my eye. The article is titled, "Online Security in the Internet Wild West" and is extremely informative. In this day and age of identity theft through technology, online security is extremely important!

Please take a few minutes to read the article, and as a bonus, you will also find updated information about the Wisconsin "Do Not Call" Registry.
