From the Pastor's Pen

Do you ever feel like you slipped on a banana peel and when you picked yourself up, it was two months later? Seems like it was just yesterday that we were “gearing up for August.” Now, November is upon us! The good news is that while time seems to be moving at warp speed, there are so many things happening at St. Matthew – and I’m excited about what God is doing in our midst.
During the Colossians series in September, we had 14 people ask Jesus to come into their lives in a deeper way. During the second week of Proverbs, we had 11 more people ask Jesus to be the Lord of their lives. On October 13, we had 25 people join St. Matthew. In the words of C.S. Lewis, “Aslan is on the move!”
Later this month, you will find out more about a prayer initiative to pray for St. Matthew that I believe
will be a game-changer for all of us. It’s called Breakthrough Prayer, and it will be a chance for all of us to pray fervently for more of God to “Break Through” St. Matthew. I can’t wait!
Lastly, I want to tell you all how blessed Gina and I are to be here at St. Matthew. Every day when I’m
walking home from church, I’m thanking God for all of you. I pray your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are blessed beyond measure and that your families are blessed as well. And, I pray that the presence, power and comfort of God’s Holy Spirit be with you daily.
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 1:3-6)
