At St. Matthew's, worship is the heart of what we do. We are a community that is on a spiritual journey. From our oldest to youngest members, tallest to smallest, we gather to worship with all of who we are and all of what we carry. Worship is a place for us to gather and find shelter in the most difficult of times, and also a place for us to share our great joy with a community where we are welcome to be our whole selves.
We hope you'll take a look through these pages to learn more about our worship life at St. Matt's. While Sunday morning is our primary time to worship, there are many opportunities to gather for prayer and song throughout the seasons.

Our faith teaches us that marriage is a sacramental rite in which two persons “enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows" (BCP, p. 861). The union is understood to be intended by God for their mutual joy; for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity…Read More »
As Christians, we believe that death is a part of God's plan of salvation.
