Stewardship: Time, Talent, & Treasure
These are unprecedented times and we need to use our personal resources (time, talent, and treasure) more than ever. Use your time to reach out to members. You can access CCB for phone numbers and addresses if you want to send someone a card. Use your time to pray for the world and this pandemic. Use your talents to help others even if it’s in a virtual manner. The church needs your donations as much as ever. You may donate online @ www.stmatthewtrinity.org You may mail your donation into the office @ 57 8th Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030. We need everyone to come together and support each other. We need to be here for everyone when we come out of this pandemic.
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” …2 Corinthians 9:7
Spread the Word on the St. Matthew Trinity Center
Brick by Brick! Step by Step! Day by Day! Keep this project in your prayers and help in whatever way you can. There are flyers available or you may go online, www.stmatthewtrinity.org, to make a donation. It’s not too late! Spread the word. Tell your family and friends. Share with local businesses that may want to support a newly renovated space on Washington Street that will improve the neighborhood that we share. “In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.” Matthew 7:12
Greetings from Lunchtime Ministry
Greetings from Lunchtime Ministry! It has been quite a week: We have temporarily discontinued our sit-down services and have been serving to-go coffee, sandwiches, and toiletries: vital services for our guests as they continue to have fewer and fewer options in town. We have also been receiving a tremendous amount of donations: community members dropping by with homemade sandwiches, orders from our Amazon wish list, etc. We tremendously appreciate the support. Stay safe everyone!
