"We Are The Hands and Feet of Christ"
We at St. Matthias' are blessed with an abundance of ways to serve God by serving his people. This generous congregation donates time, talent and treasure in so many different ways.
The Micah Initiative. Volunteers serve as mentors and classroom assistants at John B. Cary Elementary School. We have donated classroom supplies, art supplies, and books, and have provided breakfasts, lunches and special snacks for the faculty.
Monthly Shelter Feeding. The congregation provides bag lunches for four homeless shelters - Good Samaritan, Liberation Family Services, and Home Again's men's, and women's and children's shelters.
KAIROS. Volunteers spend long weekends sharing God's love with those in prison.
Lesana Community Development. We are helping to rebuild Mambo, a village in Sierra Leone, which was home to one of our parishioners.
CARITAS. For one week in the winter, we house homeless families in the church, providing for all their needs while they are with us.
Elmcroft. Volunteers provide monthly Eucharist at this assisted-living facility.
Christmas Mother. Every year St. Matthias' provides a generous Christmas to both families and the elderly. Several parishioners serve on the county-wide board.
The cornerstone of Outreach at St. Matthias' is the Outreach Fund. This is a separate pledge from which all monies go into the community to help those in need. Because of the generosity of the congregation, this year the Outreach budget is over $70,000!
