Meet Matthew and Charity Abate.
Matthew and Charity live in Pasadena and have been members since last fall. Charity works for Russ Reid fundraising for homeless shelters across the county and Matthew is a full time student at Talbot Seminary. They love to walk at the Arboretum, read, play games and host small dinner parties with friends. They serve in the Pantry at church.
Matthew loves movies (used to work in Hollywood) so can't narrow down an all-time favorite. Charity picks a new movie each time she's asked; this time she'll choose Sweet Home Alabama.
Charity just finished reading The Photograph by Beverly Lewis and Matthew is reading A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson.
We are so glad to have Matthew and Charity in our church! Now that you know a little bit about them, say hi on Sunday - and ask Matthew what he did in Hollywood!
