On Christmas Eve the St. Matthew's choir had the opportunity to tell the story of our Savior's birth through the words and music of "Once Upon a Night."
Told from the perspective of the Gospel writer Luke, "Once Upon a Night" uses songs and narrative to share the steps God took in bringing his Son into the world to be our Savior.
On Saturday, December 9th, St. Matthew's held its Christmas Tree Decorating Celebration.
The people of our community were invited to come and help us decorate our Christmas tree as we heard from God's word the meaning of the different symbols on the tree. We also had an opportunity to sings some favorite Christmas Carols. Afterward there was time for food and fellowship.
Thank you to all who came out to help decorate our tree!
A fun time was had by all at the Trivia competition put on by the Lincoln Township library. The competition is held at the Red Brick Cafe in Baroda. This months challenge was Christmas Trivia. While St. Matthew's was able to put together 3 teams for this competition, the "13 Kidneys," were able to still come up with a last round win. Yet everyone was still a winner as the Red Brick Cafe treated the competitors to home-made cookies!

On Saturday, December 2nd our local area Lutheran High School put on its annual Band and Coral Concert.
With the theme "Now Sing and Rejoice," the concert gave all who attended a wonderful opportunity to do both (sing and rejoice) as we began the season of Advent.
St. Matthew's own Mackenzie Zabel played the saxophone solo for the band concert. Great job Mackenzie!
