Announcements – September 24 – October 1

Little Lambs Birthday Party:

Little Lambs officially opened its doors just about 3 years ago.  We thank God for the blessings that he has bestowed on this ministry and ask that he would meet our needs as we continue in our mission to share the love of Jesus through quality childcare and Christian education.  Join us for a special “Birthday Party” and Potluck celebration on Sunday, September 24.  A short program will be held in the school gym at 4:30 and the meal will follow.

Tuesday Night Bible Class – September 26: A Bible Study on key truths from God’s Word as echoed by Martin Luther during the Reformation era will be held on Tuesday nights.  By discovering the ways in which Luther taught these principles to the people of his day, we hope to better understand the faith of the famous reformer and grow in our knowledge of doctrines that still support the Christian faith today. Tuesday Night Bible Class begins on September 26.  The class takes place from 6:15pm – 7:30pm each Tuesday at St. Matthew’s Danube.

St. Matthew’s Choir – September 26: Come and make a joyful noise to the Lord.  Choir practice will begin along with the return of Tuesday Night Bible Class on September 26.  Please join us from 7:30 – 8:30pm on Tuesday nights.
