members serve our church in . . .
We seek to empower our members of St. Matthias Episcopal Church to carry out various ministries inside and outside the church. The joy you receive is very satisfying when you actively participate in the spiritual life of the church. All that we do is aimed at serving God and His children and preserving His creation. Whatever your talents, interests or passions, we invite you to find your place at St. Matthias and the work we do.
2) Nutrition Hub Ministry at Dr. George Washington Carver Edible Park and EEVS Community Garden: Volunteers from St. Matthias’ and our friends at the Church of the Red Door are participating in monthly work days at the historic Edible Park and new Community Garden. Both the Edible Park and the Community Garden are key components of the Stephens-Lee Recreation Center’s Nutrition Hub, which are intended to address food insecurity in the community.
