During this liturgical year, many of our Gospel lessons will be from the book of Matthew. There’s a reason why this is the first book of the New Testament, it was written to prove that Jesus Christ is the long-awaited, promised Messiah, the King of all the earth.  Matthew emphasizes the Old Testament prophecies that Jesus fulfills, from His birth through His ministry and right up to His death and resurrection. There is more material in this book of the Bible than we will ever be able to cover on Sunday mornings.  With this in mind, we have developed tools to help you to explore deeper into the book of Matthew. 

  • There are monthly Intergenerational studies for the entire family which will be offered on the first Sunday of the month following the worship service.
  • The Wednesday Word group will also study this book in their weekly Zoom meetings from noon to 1pm beginning January 18. Here is a link for the Zoom  for Wednesday Word (accessible by website login).

We realize, however, that there are many who would like to learn more about Matthew but are unable to participate in either of these groups.  With that in mind, we have made available a series of videos viewable at your convenience using this link Matthew Weekly Video and Readings.  We do hope many of you will take advantage of one of the learning opportunities available.

Thank you, Pastor Ward
