Welcome from the Rector
I'm so glad that your journey has led you to our website to take a look around. I hope that these pages will offer you a glimpse into our life together, and that you'll come visit us on Sunday morning - that is the best way to get to know us! No matter who you are or where you are on your spiritual journey, there is a place for you at St. Matt's. Come as you are, bring your whole self, bring your questions, your wonderings, and your desire to know Jesus. No matter who you are, where you came from, what color your skin is, how you got here, or who you love, God loves you, and there is a place here for you.
St. Matt's is a warm and inclusive community of disciples who are learning to be apostles, meaning we are learning together how to serve Christ in the world. We take our faith and the work to which God calls us very seriously - but we don't take ourselves too seriously. This is a place of deep friendships, transformative relationships, ringing laughter, and authentic welcome. This is a place of rest and refreshment, a place of learning and growth, a place to come when you're looking for shelter from the storm. It's a place of special welcome for our kids, who are incorporated across all aspects of our life together. It's a place to experience beautiful sacred music as part of our worship, a place of many fantastic choirs. St. Matt's is also a place of many invitations: Join us as we participate in God's Mission, come to a Bible study or an adult education program, worship in the beauty of holiness, and share your gifts and talents with us as we serve God together. It is an exquisite blessing in my life to serve as Rector in this place and to be partner in ministry to these faithful, generous, gifted Christians and I hope that you'll come to know the blessing of this community, too.
If you have questions, or if you'd like to connect with me before you visit, please don't hesitate to be in touch. The Vestry, Staff, and I look forward to welcoming you and sharing the journey with you.
