Advent Season and Christmas 2017

Beloved in Christ at St. Matthew’s:


        As the season of Advent moves toward its fulfillment, when we

        gather in awe and wonder to celebrate Christ’s birth, I pray that
        your experience of worship and prayer this Advent has been full                                 

        of unexpected blessings – for the God we see and know in Jesus                             

        is good and gracious, and his gifts to us are so much more                                             

        wonderful than we can imagine.

                                                                        The Rev. Timothy J. Vellom
