We think of worship as a conversation with God. We bring our troubles to him and he tells us what he has done for us as well as what he will continue to do for us. We use a variety of formats with music both new and old to give people from every generation ways to talk and listen to the Lord. A normal service will last about one hour.
Who May Attend Worship?
Anyone is welcome to attend our worship services. We love to share the wonderful news of God's love and forgiveness.
How much does it cost to worship?
Absolutely nothing. We exist to share what we have. Our members give their offerings so that we can continue to share the good news of forgiveness in Christ Jesus. When the offering plates are passed, it is an opportunity to support the continuing message we proclaim here at St. Matthew.
What should I wear?
What's important is not what you wear. We are glad to welcome you and to share the great things God has done for you, no matter what you wear.
Scripture teaches that the Lord's Supper brings us close to Jesus and expresses our closeness to each other. For that reason, we practice "close" communion. We ask that only those who are close in faith and fellowship (WELS or ELS members) partake with us. If you would like to know more, our pastor would be happy to visit with you. If you are visiting, please speak to the pastor before communing.
Communion is offered the 1st, 3rd and (when applicable) 5th Sunday of the month in all services. We use individual cups along with the common cup in all Communion services.
For Your Convenience...
Handicapped Accessibility: We have several handicapped parking spaces close to the church entrance.
Visitor Parking: We also have several visitor parking spaces located between the handicap parking and the street side of the parking lot.
Nursery: Our nursery (cry room) is located in the back of church, with a window into the sanctuary so that you can still see the service. There is plenty of space with rocking chairs, a changing table, books and toys for the children. We have a wonderful sound system in the nursery, so that you will not miss the service. Anyone is welcome to use this room when their children become restless.
Large Print Bulletins: We offer large print editions of our service. Everything one needs to participate in the worship service is there.
Audio Devices: For those who are hard of hearing, we offer hearing devices. Talk to one of our friendly ushers for assistance.
