We thank you for considering a financial gift to us!

Summer is here!  People are going away on vacations, heading to the beach, enjoying the beautiful weather.  That can mean that offerings to the church may not be easily made.  Here’s a few ideas to help you support St. Matthew’s if you’re away: You can get set up on POP (our Preauthorized Offering Program) for the summer months only.  (You can stay on once you see how convenient the program is!)  Laurel will be available after Sunday services to help with the setup process.  Forms are available in the narthex. 

You can provide postdated cheques for the summer months.  You can go onto the Canada Helps website and make your donation there. Please use the 'Donate On-Line' button below.

Thank you for your continued support of

St. Matthew’s!


Caring For Our Community

 The role of YMCA Housing Stability Workers is to help clients become housed. In many cases these individuals have nothing to bring to their new home. They are connected with services available to help in their community including Salvation Army, food bank and community meals. As often as the Y is able, they provide a gift card so clients can purchase some staples for their cupboards but there remains a need for other necessary items.

Could you help by donating towards a “Welcome Home” kit which YMCA staff

would provide to those in need?

 Kits include: 4 plates, 4 bowls, 4 knives, forks & spoons 4 cups, can opener, paring knife, egg flipper, 1 pot, 1 frying pan, dish cloth,  2 tea towels  and dish soap

Additional items which could be included and would be appreciated by those receiving them would include: mixing bowl, cake pan, cookie sheet, other cooking utensils such as a large spoon, spatula, etc.  Items do not have to be new, nor do they have to match. Donations can be dropped off at St. Matthew's Ev. Lutheran beginning  on June 3rd, 2018.   Thank you for your support!
