Remembering and honoring our Brave Heroes. ...

Thank you to all who donated supplies for Church of the Common Ground! ...

Looking for artists that would like to Create for a Cause -- providing scholarships for needy families, upgrades and new materials for our preschool! Any medium of imaginative or creative self expression accepted! The art fair will be held the second week of May. Please submit donations by May 1st. Another way to help the preschool would be to share this with artists you may know. We're so excited to hold this 1st time event. #createforacause

Hello all!
We are quickly approaching our host week at Promise Haven. We have a desperate need for hospitality hosts in the evenings and on Saturday, as well as overnight hosts on Friday and Saturday. Please sign up if you have not already: and share with your St. Matthews friends who might be interested.

If you need to submit a background check or take the Praesidium Academy online module called “Keeping Your Church Safe” (you only need this if you do not have Safeguarding training) please let me know.

If you sign up for Hospitality Host and want to have a quick visit to Promise Haven to get your bearings beforehand, I will be there at 4:30pm on Sunday, March 20th. I can go through the simple procedures for unlocking the house, review the safety guidelines and show you around. We will be done by 5pm.

All volunteers are asked to review the Family Promise 101 and 102 Training online at
You can self-register on that site and complete the modules at your leisure.

Dinner Hosts
If you have signed up as a dinner host, I will have number of guests and any special dietary information to send you this week. Once you have an idea of your menu, please let the group know so we don't have duplication.

More information about our host week can be found at

Thank you so much for sharing your time and being an integral part of this new chapter in the Family Promise of Gwinnett story!

Shoot me an email or text if you have questions 678-779-4215

Don’t forget that this Sunday we spring forward! ...
