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.
Sunday School classes are for ALL AGES. Sunday School meets from 9:45-10:45. Thanks to all those who have committed to teaching for this year.
A great time was had by all at our "God's Work. Our Hands" event. The annual event began at Zion Lutheran Church in Abbeyville with lunch. After lunch we dispersed into numerous locations to work on local projects. Many of the ELCA's over 9,000 congregations participated in this "reaching out to others" day. We had over 100 persons reaching out in Jesus' name.
Our congregation's Transitional Housing ministry is being featured in the annual report of the Mission Investment Fund (MIF), and, in a video being produced for the MIF's web-page. On July 1 and 2 videographers were here to interview folks. Here is the story of how we live God's love through this ministry.
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!
