Sulphur Grove Retreat at St. Matthews!

God opened so many doors during the Sulphur Grove mission retreat at St. Matthews UMC! The team at St. Matts was excited to provide a full service experience that fed the mind with guided arts workshops, fed spirit by providing space for focused devotion, and fed the body with delicious home cooked meals… All of which fueled the Sulphur Grove team’s mission to distribute food boxes to families in Memphis.


Celebración at St. Matts!

We had a wonderful time in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ! What a blessing to be able to welcome them into our freshly renovated sanctuary and celebrate their first anniversary with them. Worship with Puerto Rican Christian music singer, Samuel Hernández, was anointed and and refreshing. Congratulations to the saints at La Iglesia Cristiana Ebenezer! We wish you many more years to come!

Mother’s Day Fellowship



What a feast! The food tasted like pure love! Home cooked goodness was served by the men of St. Matthews and La Iglesia Cristiana Ebenezer in honor of our lovely mothers..
