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.
The conclusion of the Easter Season occurs on Pentecost. The festival seaon of the Church Year ends with Holy Trinity Sunday on May 31. Then we begin the Season of Pentecost which will not conclude until Advent begins. Throughout the Pentecost Season we will be using Setting 4 from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship book on the third Sunday of each month.
Our Sunday School program year concluded on May 17.
Lisa Burke has accepted the position of President-Elect for this year. This means Lisa will also serve as the President in 2016. Thanks Lisa!!!
A Staff Task Force has been established and is holding four congregational forums to discuss the future staffing of our congregation. The last forum will be held at 9:45 on May 31. Please come to let your ideas and thoughts be known. Serving on the task force are Melanie Brown, Todd Costello, Kelly Obermeier, and Cindy Rickly.
We have begun to use Setting Four from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship as our liturgy on the third Sunday of each month. This is an old liturgy that many will find familiar.
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!
