From the Senior Warden:

Good morning!  As we go through this interim period at St. Matthew’s I will try to update you on happenings and ministry opportunities.

First, please join me in welcoming back The Reverends Charlie Walton and Michael Hub, who will be serving as supply clergy during the search process.

Second, I have received an email from Ms. Swinney-Johnson, who is our contact for the annual “angel tree” project in the Darlington schools.  The schools are in need of undergarments for children who either are without or are soiling them during the day.  Currently the teachers are paying for these supplies and I hope you will agree that we can help with this. Ms. Swinney-Johnson says that they have a need for kleenex, hand sanitizer, underwear for boys and girls (sizes: 4 toddler-14), socks (shoe sizes 6 toddler-5 kids), pull-ups (sizes: 4t/5t-6x). There will be a signup sheet in the parish hall so that we don’t all buy the same size. If you feel called to help, please bring your items to the church on March 24th.

Although I am sad about the Jordan family leaving, I know that the Lord will provide for us so I am excited to see what’s coming.
