St. Matthew’s is a unique place. We are a high-energy, welcoming, fun congregation. We take God and the work to which God calls us very seriously – but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Children and youth are integrated in all aspects of our life. We are actively seeking more ways to extend hospitality to all people, especially our kids.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at St. Matt’s. We are a warm and inclusive community and we are on a journey together.
St. Matt's is a place where we learn about God and learn to be disciples, and yet – St. Matt's isn't just a place. It's a place to call home. We are glad you’re here today. God bless you, God keep you, and God bring you back safely again.
St. Matthew’s offers many opportunities for us to grow in faith. From Tuesday Morning Prayer to (nearly) monthly Pub Theology and periodic book clubs and other events - there are many ways to deepen your faith and connection to God at St. Matthew’s. Please take a look at the posts below to see what's going on right now!
All are welcome.
