New Major Ministry Proposal: "Neighbors Cafe" Open Forum

September 30, 2018 - 12:30pm
Event Location: 
Walled Lake Campus

Please join us for an Open Forum to discuss a new major ministry proposal.

Let’s Be Good Neighbors

Over the last three years, the Bridge Ministry has been working to create a ministry that (1) gets out into the community (2)  meets a basic need  of people in the community and (3) builds  a relationship with those people with the ultimate goal of sharing Jesus.

Following a model that was very successful at Messiah Lutheran Church in Midland and aligns with our 20/20 Vision, the Bridge Ministry has been developing a proposal for a new ministry at St Matthews called Neighbors Café. This café would provide food, friendship, and support to anyone that visits. The Suspended Meals offered would provide meals to those who have a need for a no cost meal.  It is our hope that through this friendship, a relationship with Jesus can begin.

Before taking this to a future Congregational Assembly for consideration, the Bridge Ministry would like to get your input on this proposal.  So, please join us at a one of the Open Forum meetings listed below, where you can ask questions, learn more about the ministry, and get to know the Bridge Ministry. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at or visit
