Youth & Family Ministries & Activities
"Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed." - Genesis 28:14
Youth and Family activities at St. Matthews strive to provide inter-generational events and devotions. We believe the youth can learn much from the adults and the adults often learn more from the youth. Events include a fall trip to the orchard, Christian music concerts, game nights, movies and more. We spend time each Sunday learning about the Word of God and encouraging each other for the week ahead.
