~ Celebrating Our Family ~

Marsha Lehman, Sunday School Coordinator

Marsha is from Philadelphia and has lived in Arizona for 6 years. She was a school teacher and also worked in a museum teaching a life long learning program. She is a professional artist and member of Red Mountain UMC where she is active in UMW. Marsha is our new Sunday School Coordinator at St. Matthew UMC. She believes that Sunday School is an important part of the church for children and families because they need what the church offers and need to learn that they can always count on God in their lives. We welcome Marsha Lehman to our St. Matthew family!

Are you thinking about SPRING CLEANING soon? Our youth can help you this year through our HIRE-A-YOUTH fundraiser. Every Saturday from Mar 1 through May 17 you can reserve a few youth to come to your house to help you with projects. After they work, we hope for a donation that will go toward their summer mission trip. The Senior High youth are serving God this year in Cortez, Colorado and our Junior High youth are serving God in Phoenix.  Here is a list of jobs that they are ready to do: Babysitting, light yard work including: planting flowers, washing windows, light house cleaning, cooking and/or baking, picking fruit, and visiting with you. Watch for us on the patio in March and sign-up for a Saturday or email Maureen Jobe to reserve a date.  Thank you for supporting our youth!
