Matthew's Party - People Matter

You Belong.

Jesus was liked by people who were unlike him. People flocked to Jesus because they knew he was for them. God’s message is hope for all people… not just church people. We want to make it easy to say yes to Jesus by making it hard to say no to church. This is a place where all people are welcome.

Is this for me?

Hi there! I love stories.  Everyone has one, and everyone could use a few good characters.  I love to help people connect their stories with others and create new ones together. Let’s swap stories over a warm (or frosty) beverage. Join the family!
