On Sun, Oct 24, we will be blessed to have Mr. Phillip Magness with us at St. Matthew. Phillip has served as a full-time parish musician and has led music for numerous special events and retreats. He currently has a dual call to Village Lutheran Church in Ladue, MO and as an LCMS missionary to French-speaking countries in West and Central Africa. He will be sharing his talents with us by accompanying our worship music for our 9:15am service. We will also be collecting a door offering for Phillip's mission work. During a potluck brunch to follow the service, Phillip will share a presentation on the good work the Lord is doing in Africa. Members are encouraged to bring "brunch food" such as egg bakes, muffins, coffee cakes, fruit, etc. As a bonus, Phillip will be providing a music workshop at St. Matthew on Sat, Oct 23 from 2:00-4:00pm for accompanists, vocalists, and those interested in the worship life of the church: "Leading and Guiding the Saints in Song: Nurturing Robust Singing in the Christian Congregation."
