Worship


St. Matthew’s is committed to the beautiful and rich historical Lutheran liturgical tradition.  We understand that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, the liturgy connects us with the saints of the past, as well as with our beloved departed.   The Sunday Eucharist is the Divine Source of our faith and life together.  Holy Communion is offered every Sunday at 10:30 AM and during the summer months (July through the second Sunday in September) at 9:30 AM.

 

St. Matthew’s  has a long tradition of musical excellence.  The church has a 39 rank Shantz  pipe organ and a volunteer choir with professional section leaders.  We are committed to our rich Lutheran musical heritage, as well as the whole musical tradition of the Western Church.  But we are also open to the many beautiful new and contemporary musical expressions of the ancient faith -- in both the hymns we sing and the choral anthems.  You will see that we incorporate a balance of the old and the new.

 

We strive for fidelity, integrity, solemnity and joy in our worship and believe that the spiritual health of each person, and the congregation, is dependent on the quality of our worship.

 

Lift up your hearts!

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God!

It is right to give him thanks and praise.

 

 

The Church is open Monday through Friday from 11:30AM – 1:30 PM for personal prayer and meditation.

All are welcome!
