 Care Team
 

Believing that God hears our prayers and is faithful, St. Matthew’s Care Team meets each Thursday afternoon at 3PM to pray for the concerns of our church and its members, and it is open to everyone.   Each member of the team is assigned one person on our concern list  to call, send a card, visit, etc..  We are available to drive to doctors appointments, prepare meals, run errands, etc. and have a Care Team Angel which is “secretly” placed in the yards of those in need of  extra care or thanks for a job well done.
