Fellowship

covered dishesParish life at St Matthias’ is a combination of multiple opportunities for member participation both in the church and in the surrounding community uniting us into a strong family unit. Sharing worship, fellowship, and food significantly enhances this sense of unity. Our Pastoral Care Team includes a food ministry, home and hospital visitations and event receptions.

Hospitality

On the first Sunday of each month, after the 10:30am worship service the church family gathers in the Parish Hall for a covered dish lunch. A favorite dish or dessert is provided by and shared with, all members and their guests.

On other Sundays, after the 10:30am worship service, coffee, other beverages and light refreshments are served by parishioners.

Shrove Tuesday

We traditionally celebrate Shrove Tuesday with a Pancake Supper. Most recently, this event was sponsored by the church’s Outreach Committee who used the proceeds to benefit charitable ministries in both the local community as well as the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta.

Lenten Season

During this season, members share Lenten programs which redirect and focus attention on the importance and significance of the events of Lent. An Easter egg hunt and brunch are a special part of Easter Sunday at St. Matthias’ and Pentecost is
celebrated by an outdoor service in a local park followed by our annual Picnic in the Park.

The Seniors’ Fellowship of St. Matthias’

Ages: 50+

The mission of this group is to share the wealth of talent and experience that seniors possess and to make a contribution to our church family.

The Senior’s Fellowship of St. Matthias’ held its first meeting on May 9, 2000. Since that time, this group has become one of the most active in the parish. Anyone at least 50 years of age may attend these meetings which are held once a month, either in a member’s home or Parish Hall at the church.

One of their projects was to research and publish a booklet detailing the history of each of the stained glass windows in the Sanctuary. They have also provided financial contributions to our youth programs. A large number of seniors are volunteers for many activities the parish participates in during a year.

Daughters of the KingSt. Matthias’ DOK was established on April 1, 1971, and is an order composed of women who are active inside and outside of the church.
