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 will have worship on Thanksgiving Day at 10:00 am. This is a long tradition at St. Matthew and will include Holy Communion. All are welcome to give thanks to God for all the blessings of life.
We begin a new Church Year on Sunday, November 30, the First Sunday of Advent.
Thanks to our Luther League who provided a wonderful meal for all those over 65 years of age. It was a grand time with a great meal! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
We will be having Advent potluck dinners on Wednesday evenings Dec. 3, 10, and 17. The meal starts at 6:00 p.m. and our Holden Evening Prayer begins at 7:00 p.m. Bring a favorite dish to share and join us for an evening food, fellowship and worship.
Thanks to Nancy McNeil for agreeing to be our Interim Music Director. Luther Choir practices will be at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays.
Photographs for a new Pictorial Directory have been taken. We hope to have our pictorial directories within a couple of months. Thank your for participating.
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!
