What to Expect
Coming together for the Glory of God
There are two types of worship services offered at St. Matthew. On Sunday mornings, the traditional form of liturgy is used. Worship is supplemented with a bulletin that contains the whole service making it easier to follow.
On Sunday evening, we use a more contemporary style. This form of worship is more casual. Our contemporary band, “The Fishtones”, comprised of guitars, keyboard, drummer and singers, leads worship and praise music that resembles music heard on local Christian radio. The Fishtones have a recorded CD and lead with an expertise and enthusiasm that enhances the time we spend before God.
The Lord’s Supper / Communion
As a member of the NALC, we open communion to all those who believe in Jesus and his promise of salvation by grace through faith. We believe that Christ is mysteriously present in, through, and under the elements of Bread and Wine. This sacrament or gift from God unifies us as children of God under the commonality of Christ. Communion is distributed every Sunday during the morning traditional services only.
The Nursery provides supervised care for school age children during the 11am worship services. Through professional background checking, our church endeavors to ensure safe supervision. All children of families attending the Sunday 11am services are welcome in our Nursery!
Fishtones had their beginnings in 1997. We needed a casual contemporary style of music and asked members from St. Matthew to help. Slowly musicians were added to the band until the present members were formed. We are blessed to have such a committed and talented group of people serving in the Lord in this special ministry.
Our choir is lead by Pam M. Pam brings to the choir her musical talent and gifted leadership. We have members who serve on the choir, year after year, with heart and dedication serving God with voices of praise. We are tremendously blessed to have our choir serving the Lord and leading those who worship at St. Matthew.
