Please see Willis Ann, Pastor Brett, Nancy Katsuki, Peggy Newsome, Diane Sadler, or Lydia Connelly if you know of someone in our community who is alone and would benefit  from the New Ministry starting at Mathews Chapel. This ministry is designed to meet their spiritual needs, and establish a support system to share life and study God's word. Please keep this new ministry in your prayers.

The Sonshine Musical was a big success! Fantastic music, fellowship and refreshments. Thank you to Joy, Dan and the choir for their wonderful performances; to Gene and Dan in the sound booth; to everyone who brought goodies, and to everyone who donated to the Mataponi Healing Eagle Clinic. We collected $1264 that evening. If anyone would still like to donate, please make your check to Mathews Chapel UMW and give it to Alice Dennis.
With gratitude, Mathews Chapel UMW
