St. Matthew Lutheran Church is a Christian family, based in the holy and perfect Word of God– the Bible.  We are eager for you to join us!  Our logo design reflects a tree.  Picture it like a "family tree": The roots of the tree are planted firmly in the soil of Jesus Christ. The trunk of the tree is God's holy Word, which is our primary strength and support. The two main branches are Worship and Discipleship, and the leaves are God's people, who are nourished by God's Word through the branches.  We encourage you to browse this site to learn more about our family.  Please contact us if you would like more information!
