Welcome, and thank you for visiting Saints Andrew & Matthias online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

PRAYER FOR ALL IN THE SERVICE OF OUR COUNTRY
O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defense, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

In Time of Great Sickness
(BCP p. 45)
O MOST mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Our Police
Almighty God, we beseech thee to pour thy blessing upon our country's police forces. Strengthen and protect them in all danger. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
A man said he realized that he tended to blame other people for his problems rather than taking responsibility.
He said that it wasn't his fault really though - it was the way he was raised.
God reminds those of us who call ourselves Christians, of our responsibility toward God and to others.
He has given us some words of Saint Paul, that we read from his Epistle to the Romans today, to remind us of some ways we should be doing our Christian duty as we make our way through this new year.
Romans XII:10 “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another, Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.”
St. Paul tells us we are to be “kindly affectioned” to each other, and if we in the Church are to get the work done that God has in store for us we can't afford to waste time and energy in argument among ourselves.
We can't let unnecessary unpleasantness among ourselves take us off task.
He reminds us that we each have different gifts and abilities. We all should do our part to help the Church grow, but no one should think “more highly” of themselves.
We can't let pride keep the Lord's work from being accomplished.
We are not to be “slothful in business”. We must use those gifts that God has given each of us. We all have talents that His Church needs to fulfill its mission.
To not use those talents that He has given us is to cheat God.
We are to be “fervent in spirit”, St. Paul reminds us, in serving the Lord. We each in this new year should be trying to improve our performance for Him. We are to be “rejoicing in hope” because through Christ's sacrifice on the cross for us we have peace with God. We can and should rejoice because we have the wonderful hope of everlasting life with Him in heaven.
Because of that hope, we should be “patient in tribulation”. We will have problems in this life just like everyone else as long as we are in the world. We know that often our problems can be used to draw us closer to our Heavenly Father.
Finally, St. Paul reminds us to be “continuing instant in prayer”. We are to be constantly asking for God's help. We need to be continually asking that we may know His will for us and that His Holy Spirit will assist us to follow through on the work that He has set before us all the days of our life here on earth.
