Christmas Pine Tree


What better time of year than Christmas for us to Know and Share God's Love with others in our community? Our annual Giving Tree will be up beginning Sunday, November 19th. 

This year, St. Matthew's is supporting family gift requests from 7 Sterling area schools, local families, and single item requests from Sterling Middle School and Women Giving Back.

Family adoptions can be done at St. Matthew's on Sundays by selecting an ornament (these are in the shape of a heart) from the Giving Tree and signing up for the family you selected on the sign-up sheet at the back of the church, or by emailing our Outreach Coordinator at

Single items can also be selected from the Giving Tree (these ornaments look like mittens).

Can't make it to the church to grab an ornament? Here are some items you can purchase for Women Giving Back, a Loudoun County organization supporting women and children in crisis, and Sterling Middle School (Sterling Middle School has been overwhelmed with family requests, and is working to provide a gift for each student in the school, nearly 1000 students. Parents will come to the school to select a gift for their student).
