Help us volunteer tonight for the Beverly New Year's Eve party.

I know that this is last-minute. However, Netcast has been asked to try and gather volunteers for tonight. The city of Beverly puts on a massive New Year's Eve party on Cabot Street every year. And every year that Netcast has been in existence, we have been able to serve at this event. This year, I totally forgot about it. But, they just asked me to try to help gather some volunteers. If you are willing to help out, it will be for about three hours from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM. It would be awesome to be able to love our community through this.

If you have the ability to do this, please call Mary Ellen Mayo at (978) 884-7232. She will be the one who is overseeing all of the volunteers. She also mentioned that you can send her a text at the number as well. Just let her know that you are with Netcast and gather any additional details from her. Every year we have done this, we have gathered outside of the YMCA on Cabot Street.

I hope that you're able to consider this. Happy new year, and I look forward to a great 2013 with you.

Pastor Matt

Merry Christmas...2012

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas…

If you would have asked me 5 years ago what I would be doing on Christmas morning of 2012; I never would have been able to accurately answer that question. However, it is an incredible honor to be in Beverly MA, the pastor of your church and more importantly, your friend. I pray that the Lord gives us many more Christmases together as we seek His face and change the world together. 

Merry Christmas and I look forward to 2013 with you. 

 Until all have heard, 

 Matt and The Chewning crew...

A "Thank You" video from Netcast Church

May we see even greater things in 2013.

All for the Glory of our King, Jesus!

Netcast 2012 Update: Merry Christmas

It's been over 2 years since Beth and I moved with the vision of starting Netcast Church. Honestly, 2 years into the journey, I could never have imagined seeing all that we are seeing.

300 years ago, Greater Boston was a beast when it came to the gospel being proclaimed; now it's the 10th largest metropolitan area in the US, full of 300,000 college students and global influence; but almost no Gospel-Proclamation. The best stats say we're still about 2% evangelical.

 In the last 2 years...God has begun a movement that continues to blow our minds. It seems that Jesus is saving people almost weekly. Actually, just recently we baptized about 70 people in 1 day. And, we're still growing like crazy. The last few months we've had over 400 people gather to worship Jesus and about ½ of them are in community groups during the week. what's even more surprising is how our online influence is growing...Between our website, podcast, app and videos...we have been able to share the gospel in every state in the US, over 80 countries and in every continent on the globe.

We're still only 2 years old; we're young, we don't have a ton of people, or money, or resources, or strength or worldly power. But I believe that “The hand of our Gracious Lord is upon us.” Beth and I cannot express how appreciative we are of you. Because of your belief in us and your support of us, Jesus is being worshiped. His name will be made great in Greater Boston and a movement is being started. Because of your continued prayers and partnership, more churches will be planted, the sick are being healed, the blind are seeing, lost are being found, and His sheep are hearing His voice.

So, on behalf of Netcast and my family; I just wanted to say “Thank You”. Thank you for investing in us, thank you for pouring into us, and thank you for loving the Kingdom of God. Some of you have asked about our fundraising. We are still raising about ½ of our salary from outside of Netcast. For those interested, you can continue to support us at 

We love you, more than you could know!!!

Matt, Beth, D, Abby, Ella and Jakes

Kids in Service and Generosity

Just wanted to let you know that this Sunday will be our Christmas Service and we will have Kids Ministry open for children 5yrs old and younger. All other children will be in service. Because of this, we will do our best to respect your time. The service will be a little shorter than usual to hold the attention span of the kiddos in the service.

Also, we will not have a service on December 30th. After this Sunday, we will not meet again until January 6th. Enjoy the break and I look forward to gathering again in 2013.

Lastly, Many of you have asked about giving online. As we move into the new year, one major benefit we have at Netcast is the ability to give online. It is incredibly easy and you can go there by clicking:


Generosity starts with correct thinking.

Sadly, statistics would tell us there is no difference between the way a Christian views generosity and the way the secular world views generosity. As believers in Christ, we believe that we serve a generous God who has given us a generous gospel. In the gospel, our Lord Jesus Christ emptied himself of all his riches and walked among us, becoming like us in every way. Then on the cross, our great God gave himself for us by becoming our sin offering and extending his righteousness to all who would believe in Him. Jesus is a generous God!

Romans 12:2 says “Do not be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind...” 

In this text, it is clear that the key that worship begins with accurate thinking, not necessarily accurate actions. In other words, the ability to worship Jesus through generosity has less to do with what we do with our resources, and everything to do with how we think of our resources.

In 1 Chronicles 29:1-14 we learn that “Everything under heaven and earth belongs to the Lord” and by Gods grace, we have been entrusted with the responsibility of managing some of the Lords resources. A faithful manager, manages assets for the owners benefit and carries no sense of entitlement to the assets that he manages. But rather, it is his or her job to find out what the owner wants done with his assets and then carry out his will.

Biblical generosity starts with being able to grab a hold of the beauty of Jesus Christ. Jesus is so incredible, so powerful and so beautiful that our only response to Him should be...“Everything under heaven and earth is your.” By “thinking” in this way, we will become incredible worshipers of God and generosity will flow out of us like never before. Generosity will become a response of seeing how incredible Jesus is and how massive his mission is in comparison to our mission. And generosity no longer becomes a duty, but can now be a reflective reaction of understanding who we are in light of who He is.

If everyday of every week believers would see how great Jesus is, how powerful Jesus is, how glorious Jesus is, how victorious Jesus is, how majestic Jesus is; then who knows how God may use a church like that. "Yours, O Lord is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours." Therefore, may we be faithful managers of His stuff. And may we worship Him well.
