Leaders: Heather Haycook & Corey Neururer
The Small Group Ministry seeks to provide opportunities for the post high school adults and families at St. Matthew to meet together for fellowship, study and activities both at church and also outside of the congregation. While we focus on family events, we rotate to hold events geared towards women, men, single, etc. We help to integrate visitors and new members into the life of our congregation. We are always open to encouraging new opportunities as they arise... like Bike Rides, Golf Outings, Cedar Point, "Wine in the Woods", Ice Coffee Bar before service, Fishing with Pastor Bill, Beer Making, Biking a Board, Wine Tasting...and a Foundry Social.

ST. MATTHEW 5-STAR MINISTRY GOALS and PLANS, 2021
Small Group Ministry
GOAL 1) Build and strengthen our personal and spiritual relationships with each other.
PLANS: Work with other teams (Congressional Life, Shepherding Team) to develop Care teams/groups of members to “oversee” and to communicate and stay in touch with members.
GOAL 2) Plan a family fellowship event.
PLANS: SGM will host the St. Matthew Summer Picnic at the Burke Residence in July. We are also hoping to host a Fall Festival too.
GOAL 3) Deepen our knowledge of the Bible and Christ.
PLANS: SGM to host monthly Women’s Devotional nights. Working with Pastor Bill and Deacon Lindsay to host weekly and/or monthly virtual and eventually in-person Women’s and Men’s bible studies.
GOAL 4) To increase our attendance of activities/events at St. Matthew by doing a better job of advertising to gain interest in the community and potentially attract new members.
PLANS: Work with the Communication team to advertise our events by using the new website, Facebook, our electronic sign, postcards, and word of mouth.
