About St. Matthew's Holiday Initiatives
Especially during the holidays, St. Matthew's supports a number of events focused on the local community, including:
Annual Holiday Initiatives at St. Matthew's
Community Easter Egg Hunt
Each year we hold a community Easter Egg Hunt, complete with Easter Bunny, face painting, games, and 2 Easter Egg Hunts.
Community Thanksgiving Luncheon
Our community Thanksgiving luncheon typically serves over 300 people.
Thanksgiving and Easter Food Donation Drives
Each year for Thanksgiving and Easter St. Matthew's fills hundreds of bags for families in the Loudoun County area.
Winter Coat Drive
St. Matthew's partners with local schools to collect and distribute 200+ coats for winter.
Holiday Star Tree
Each year we collect gifts for the Loudoun Community Holiday Coalition via the Star Tree (in 2017, over 500 gifts and 22 gift cards were collected from St. Matthew's families).
We hold a number of community "sales", including large yard sales in the spring and fall. All proceeds go to support outreach efforts in our community.
How You Can Help
As the various holidays approach, keep your eye out for announcements made during church, the weekly service bulletins, and also the website homepage for opportunities to help. We welcome your support during the holidays and at any time during the year.
To find out more about the great work on the Outreach committee, please contact Miriam at the church office.
