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.


On Reformation Sunday, at 11:00 a.m. worship seven of our young people will be confirmed. Yes, once again we will affirm God's love for Maggie, Kolin, Sarah, Aly, Joe, Julia, and Kelsey.  We will use Setting Three from the ELW at both 8:30 and 11:00.

Operation HOMES will be in our building through Sunday, October 26. Please be gracious to our guests.

Thanks to our Small Group for hosting Trunk or Treat!  It was a fun and delicious afternoon!   


Once again our Luther League had a very successful chicken BBQ.  The over $1200 in proceeds will help our youth attend the ELCA Youth Gathering in 2015. 


Thanks to Nancy McNeil for agreeing to be our Interim Music Director. Luther Choir practices will be at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays. 


Sunday School is for everyone! Parents or guardians, join your youngsters in learning about being a Christian in today's society. Our adult class just concluded a fantastic dvd series on Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Starting October 19 we will be exploring Krista Tippett's Small Group Discussions on Being. For the next five weeks we will be discussing Living Islam: Expanding Our Understanding.


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!
