Welcome to the St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church web-site.  

 

We have a simple, but "catchy" mission statement ... LGL.  It stands for Living God's Love. Our ministry revolves around this statement and becomes the goal of all we do.

 

We began the Season of Epiphany January 6.  Epiphany celebrates the coming of the wise men or magi to the house where Jesus lived. Epiphany continues through Transfiguration Sunday, which is February 15 this year.

 

Ash Wednesday, February 18 begins the Lenten Season.   We will have worship at 7:00 in the evening. 

 

For five Wednesdays in Lent, St. Matthew will particpate in a Lenten "round-robin" ... with United Church of Christ, Congregational; Medina Presbyterian, First Christian and Second Baptist Church. Each congregation will host a soup, salad and dessert dinner and will be responsible for a short worship or bible study experience. The dinner begins at 6:30 with worship or bible study starting at 7:15. Here is the schedule:

February 25 -- United Church of Christ, Congregational

March 4 -- Medina Presbyterian
March 11 -- St. Matthew Lutheran
March 18 -- First Christian
March 25 -- Second Baptist

 

Our offering envelopes have arrived.  Pick yours up.  They are in the Room of the Cross (which is behind the altar area).  

 

The Pictorial Directories are here!!!  They look nice!!! If you had your picture taken your copy of the directory is in the narthex (back of the sanctuary). Thanks especially to Karl Trenty for doing so much work on this directory.

 

 

The people of St. Matthew strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves, and, in each person we encounter. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ. We have a long tradition of outreach and service to our members and the community.

 

You are invited to be our guest at 8:30 or 11:00 on Sunday ... to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.  Or, join us for any event!
