Welcome to the St. Matthew Lutheran Church of Medina, Ohio website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. Feel free to contact us!
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 are in the Season of Pentecost, a time of growth and nourishment in the Church Year. The altar hangings will be green throughout the summer and well into fall. In some worshiping communities the Season of Pentecost is known as part of the "Ordinary Season" of the church year. Come to worship regularly to grow in faith, love, obedience, and hope.
Photographs for a new Pictorial Directory will be taken July 30, 31, August 1, and 2. This year we can sign up on-line. See the "sidebar" on this page for the link to signing up. There will also be the ability to sign-up on Sundays at the back of the sanctuary (narthex). If you get your picture taken you will receive a photo directory.
We had a Special Congregational Meeting on June 1. The lone item of business was to discuss a change in the agreement between Pastor Dave Anderson and the congregation. While there is no change in the call, Pastor Dave did ask for reduced hours (and pay) beginning in September. The congregation voted to accept this proposal.

11:00 - The Service of the Word (no Holy Communion)
