Guatemalan Mission Trip
July 29 – August 6, 2017

St. Matthew is partnering with Tree 4 Hope, a non-profit organization committed to providing a bright future of long-term hope for children, elders, and their families in Guatemala and around the world, focusing on education, health, and mental wellness. Their projects are designed to meet basic needs, empower local communities, build relationships, promote cultural exchange, and inspire youth.  The approach has been refined over the years to build long-term relationships not only with these institutions but also with the people they serve.

For more information about the trip and Tree 4 Hope, please download a Mission Trip Packet or speak to one of our team members.  Also, please keep our team and Tree 4 Hope in your prayers.

For those who ordered soup or cookie jars from our Team, they will be available the weekend of June 17.  Thank you for your support!

Another fun way to support our Team will be to participate in a PAINT NIGHT on Thursday, July 13, 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.   We will have tickets on sale soon for this event.  The cost will be $40.00 and there will be chocolate available!

To the Glory of God —
The St. Matthew Austin Organ

organ_squareThe St. Matthew world renowned Austin organ was built and dedicated that its music might resound to the Glory of God and to the uplifting of God’s people in worship. It was also the desire of the donor, and the earnest hope of the designer-organist, that its beautiful and glorious tones might give inspiration and pleasure to many beyond the membership of our congregation. The organ has 14,581 pipes and 245 stops.  Enjoy this brief video. Then come hear the magnificent sounds in person. St. Matthew is truly blessed.

Take a tour of the beautiful Nave of St. Matthew Lutheran Church. Enjoy the exquisite stained glass windows and magnificent altar from anywhere at any time.
