    • Southern Baptists enjoy Matthew Party

    • First Southern Baptist Church members and their guests enjoy good fellowship at a "Matthew Party" at the church. A Matthew Party gets people together for a party and a chance to get to know people and introduce them to Jesus. It was based on scripture in Luke 5:27-32 where the tax collector Matthew decided to follow Jesus. After making his decision, he threw a big feast or party and invited all his tax collector friends to the party where Jesus was also a guest. The religious people of the day were offended and said Jesus was a friend to sinners. Jesus said he was inviting sinners to a new life.
