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.


Holy Week is upon us.  We will worship during Holy Week on:

           Maundy Thursday at 7:00 p.m. (with Holy Communion);

           Good Friday at 8:00 p.m.


Our Easter Worship Services will be at 7:00; 9:00; and 11:00. Our Luther League will provide a breakfast after the 7:00 worship until 10:30. There will be no Sunday School on Easter.


It was a wonderful and holy joy to join with our ecumenical sisters and brothers on Wednesday evenings throuout the Lenten Season. Our meals and worship experiences have warmed our hearts. We participated in this "round-robin" ... with the United Church of Christ, Congregational; Medina Presbyterian; First Christian and Second Baptist Church. Thanks to all who ate and/or worshiped with our neighbors and friends.


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!
