Saint Matthew's is open for in person worship!

The past year and a half presented us with many challenges, but also gave us new opportunities to worship, serve and grow.

We gather on Sundays at 9am in person in the Sanctuary. If you have been vaccinated, no masks are necessary. In addition to our in person services, 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 has continued to serve the community and is open every Wednesday morning from 10am-11:30am. Beginning by mid-July, the Saint Matthew's Free Medical Clinic will be open every Wednesday from 10am-2pm and will be staffed by doctors and medical students. The Saint Matthew's Preschool is open every weekday and offers childcare following the latest SC DHEC safety guidelines. By the Fall, we will be open to all of our outside partners in service, including NA and NAMI. 

If you have a pastoral need, our clergy are available and can be reached through the church office or through their numbers listed in our parish newsletter, The Grapevine.

All of these things are possible through the faithful stewardship and volunteerism of our members and guests. 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.
