Go..and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father...Son and...the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Sunday Worship will be at 9 am with Rev. Nathan Peitsch as our Vacancy Pastor, and John Stacy as our New Vicar.

Sunday School is offered to all children after church services in the educational room from ages 4yrs and up. All are welcome to come. Jesus said "Let the little children come to me do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14 ESV



Adult Bible Study has started: it is held in the church basement, after Sunday church services. Bring a friend or neighbor and all of your questions, we will attempt to answer them. See you in the basement Wayne Kafton or Mark Witzel will be conducting the study.  We welcome ALL of you to come and contribute to the study or you can come and just listen, ask questions. We PROMISE you will not put you on the spot.

Come and enjoy the fellowship and learn more about what Jesus teaches us and what He wants us to do. Bring a friend or your neighbor. ALL ARE WELCOME TO COME. Jesus is calling you.

St. Matthew has started a New Ministry called the
Care MinistryThe Goal of this Ministry is bringing the “The Love of Jesus” to the people that need this in their present well-being.
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:39
"Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show


“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one

another, as God in Christ forgave you” Ephesians 4:32

 It is basically just showing them that we care for them, they are a member of “Our Church family”. We should treat them like that. That is what Jesus would want us to do. 

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved You. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:12-13
