Annual Meeting is tomorrow

The annual congregational meeting is our time to celebrate God's faithfulness to us in 2017, review highlights from the ministries we do in Christ's name, and vote on the budget that will support the ministries of this church in 2018.  The meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, January 21, immediately following worship.  Everyone is invited to attend the annual meeting.  Only members of the congregation are eligible to vote.

LGBT Etiquette Training

On Sunday, February 4th, Jacquis Watters, Diversity Educator from Stevens Institute of Technology, will provide a refresher course on terminology used by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to equip us with more tools and resources to make St. Matthew Trinity an even safer and more welcoming congregation.  This builds on SMT's historic commitment to be a Reconciling in Christ congregation, welcoming people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
