At Saint Matthew's, we are so thankful for the ways God has and continues to bless us that allow us to reach out to our community and world. We are excited about the chance we have to shine the light of Christ into our community. The simple fact, however, is that the church cannot do this without financial resources. Recognizing this, we want to highlight the ways a person in our church family could make a difference financially.
1. Give on Sunday During the Worship Service
You can give each Sunday by using the giving envelopes provided to you through the mail or found in the narthex. Just place your envelope in the offering plate during the service. If you are in need of additional envelopes, you can email the church office at email@example.com
2. Give by Mail During the Week
We also have offering envelopes that are self-addressed and mailable, so if you are not prepared to give on Sunday, you can drop it in the mail during the week. If you would like a set of these envelopes, please contact the church office at 599-2081 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Automated Through Your Bank
Setting up an automatic repeating payment through your bank’s online bill pay is the best way to give for several reasons. One, it makes giving a priority because you set it up to give first instead of what is left over. Two, it helps you stay consistent in your giving, even when you are away. Finally, it is a free service to you and it doesn’t cost the church anything to process it.

Your giving matters to God and to Saint Matthew’s. Please remember that even when you’re not here, the work and expenses of the church continue. Thank you for your decision to partner with us in our goal of making a difference in the lives of others and letting the light of Christ shine in our community.
