The Community Ministries Commission is committed to the shared vision of St. Matthias' as we seek to deepen our living the baptismal covenant. As a commission, we support the people of St. Matthias' in fulfilling their baptismal covenant of "... proclaiming by word and example the Good News of God in Christ" ... and "... seeking to serve Christ in all people, loving our neighbors as ourselves. Responsiveness to people in need is an essential dimension of Christian faith and life, as Jesus repeatedly taught. To this end, St. Matthias' supports a number of organizations and programs our Christian faith, grow as a loving community, and serve the needs of others."
