Camp Auxiliary Thank you...
Hello. Welcome to St. Matthew Lutheran Church! We’re happy that you “stopped by” for a visit. You’re invited to check things out as long you want. Start looking “Our Church” to find out when we gather to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to study his promises in the Bible.
When you’re ready to explore more, stroll over to “Ministry Highlights” to see what sorts of events and activities we’re involved in regularly. We’d sure enjoy your company in any of these groups.
If you have any questions along the way, please call or email me at the church, and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. Again, we’re glad you stopped by. You’re always welcome!
The church is people. That may seem like a rather obvious statement. For we all know that the church isn’t brick and stone. It is people – blood bought, chosen, holy, set apart people-bound together in a fellowship called the Body of Christ. We are people in need, people who have been touched by the gracious hand of God forgiven of all our sins because of the cross of Christ, and placed into God’s family by His Holy Spirit. We’re not just “people” – we are His people.
As God’s people we gather together frequently to worship and sing praise to our great God, to learn of His ways and pattern our lives to fit into His purposes and to share our talents in various areas of ministry, all in an effort to accomplish the primary purpose for which the church exists – to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
May God’s grace daily guide all of us. God's Blessings on your day.
