In worship, we focus our hearts on Jesus Christ, both receiving His gifts and responding to Him through prayer and praise. Worship at St. Matthew includes the best of both old and new Christian music. Services are accompanied by piano, and often, vocals and acoustic guitar. In addition to the sermon, Pastor shares a children's message in each Sunday service. Wednesday services are abbreviated, usually about 40 minutes in length. Holy Communion is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and on the preceding Wednesdays.
Children are always welcome in worship! A cry room is just outside the worship space in which parents can still listen to and watch the service.
Most worshippers dress casually at St. Matthew. We have a spacious parking lot on Highway 12 and St. Matthew's building is handicap accessible.
Sunday School is offered for children in Preschool - 6th grade. Catechism Class meets on Wednesday evenings after the service. Ignite Youth Group meets regularly for fellowship and Bible study..
St. Matthew is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, a Bible-based church body of approx. 5,800 congregations, headquartered in St. Louis, MO.
