St. Matthew's Church Building's 100th Anniversary Celebration
So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of God's household. You have been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the Cornerstone. (Ephesians 2:19-20 EHV)
Christ Jesus is the Cornerstone of our faith. In 1919 the cornerstone was laid for St. Matthew's Church. In August of that year a dedication service was held to celebrate the building of the new church. 100 years later St. Matthew's is still serving the community of Benton Harbor with God's message of Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone of our salvation.
In memory of the laying of the cornerstone there will be a special anniversary worship service held on August 25th, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. Pastor Mike Biedenbender, a son of the congregation, will be our guest preacher. There will be special music along with a commemoration booklet.
Following the service there will be memorabilia displays setup around the church and grounds, and an Anniversary Guest Register will be available for all to sign. Appetizers and refreshments will be served. Come and join us for this special event!
