The Power Behind Us is Greater than the Challenges in Front of Us

Saint Matthew's is operating on an altered schedule to help protect our people and community from the spread of the coronavirus. Outside groups and parish meetings are postponed and all in-person worship is temporarily suspended. We offer sermons and reflections online.

On Facebook, look for our two group pages: St. Matt's and Saint Matthew's Episcopal Church and Preschool. We post Compline each evening on these sites, as well as our Sunday worship. We also provide information on Christian Formation classes, Godly Play, and other parish opportunities.

The Saint Matthew's Food Pantry is open every Wednesday morning from 10am-11:30am.

Our prayerful hope is to restore regular worship as soon as possible.  The Saint Matthew's Preschool is operating and maintaining safe guidelines.

The pastoral needs of our community are still being addressed by our staff. They are working every day and can be reached by phone or email.

The church still needs your financial support, perhaps now more than ever.  Please stay current - or even ahead - with your giving by mail, bank draft, or online giving.  The link to our online giving option is here.

We pray diligently for all those impacted by the pandemic.  Remember the words of the Right Reverend Barbara Harris - "The Power behind us is greater than the challenges in front of us."

God bless!

Preach. Teach. Heal. Make Disciples.

We are a group of people who love the Lord our God and seek to preach, teach, heal, and make disciples in all things we do. We come from a variety of different backgrounds but what binds us together is our committment to becoming better followers of Jesus Christ. We firmly hold that what we pray is what we believe and this shapes how we live. The best way to find out more about who we are is to join us for worship.

We are about caring, worshiping, learning, connecting, giving - and supporting youth and education through our preschool.

We hope you will use our website to find a place to participate: online through the posted sermons, at a worship service on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning, or in our outreach activities to feed and provide medical care to the community.
