About Our Church

We are a family of believers that proclaim the Word of God and reach out to the world with the Good News of Christ. We pray for guidance & support, inspiration, Christian service and leadership provided by our membership & our larger Church family.



Regardless of our age, we can each continue to achieve personal growth in our discipleship through education. Study and Disussion groups can help educate members of our congregation of all ages - so that our faith might grow as individuals through community.


Mission Ministries

Christ is always working through his children to share the message of His salvation to those across the globe. Members of our congregation help spread this message through service in His name to others both in our local community and around the world.


Youth & Family

Youth and Family activities at St. Matthews strive to provide inter-generational events & devotions. We believe the youth can learn much from the adults and the adults often learn more from the youth.

Theme & Focus:
God wants us to choose life because God has chosen you. Yet, we daily break The Commandments, but these are still words of life for us. These Ten Words of Life point to our need of forgiveness which God freely gives to us in Jesus’ death and resurrection.
