Bishop's Visitation

posted Jul 8, 2014, 1:12 PM by Lorrie Slaymaker
August 3 we will host our annual Bishop's visitation, with the Rt Rev Larry R Benfield, presiding at St Matthew's.  The Bishop of Arkansas, visits the many Episcopal Churches in Arkansas once each year.  The Bishop's visitation is a time to tune into the greater ministries of our our state and Diocese, as well as celebrate the Rite of Confirmation and Reception within our own church gathering of new and growing members. There will be services at 8:30 and 11:00 on the day of Bishop Benfield's visitation and after the 11:00 worship we will share in a lunch in honor of the Bishop and of our new Confirmands and those Received into the church.  Great day to visit St Matthew's for the first time, and a great time to come again. and the as we gather in Christ on August 3, 2014.
