Valley residents are receiving mail from a questionable church with questionable promises. St Mathews Publishing and Church Ministry hit the valley with its' literature promising blessings in exchange for money.

The only listing for St. Mathews is a P.O. box in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Included in the mailing is a prayer rug with a picture of Jesus and instructions to pray on it. You are then to check off a prayer list and send them money.

"I just wanted to bring this forward to let people know what's going with this so people don’t fall into this and give money that could go to other needy causes," said Jonathan Smith who received the church's literature.

There is a real church in Tulsa called St. Mathews that doesn't have any connection to this one.
