Celebrating God's Love, Serving in Jesus' Name

Cookie Walk Bakers Needed

Calling all cookie bakers!!! The First Annual St. Matthew Cookie Walk needs your help. Our goal is to have 100 bakers. Cookies will need to be dropped off at the church by Friday, December 5th. All proceeds from the cookie walk will go to support our partner Companions in Christ congregation in the Konde Diocese, Tanzania, Africa. You can sign up to bake by CLICKING HERE.

Interested?     Here’s how the Cookie Walk will work:
At the door "walkers" will be able to purchase an empty 8” x 8 ”x 3” box for $10. Once inside, participants are free to fill their boxes with a large variety of homemade cookies, lovingly prepared by our own St. Matthew bakers and their friends. You can fill the box with as many cookies as will fit — so long as you can close the lid.
(And, YES, that means YOU, Pastor Yeiser.)

The Cookie Walk will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014, in Fellowship Hall. Sign up for "Cookie Walkers" begins in November and is brought to you by the St. Matthew Global Mission Team.

Stop Hunger Now 2 Successful –
31,884 Meals Packed

Saturday, October 25, was another wonderful day of "Celebrating God's Love. Serving in Jesus' Name." Members of St. Matthew and friends from the community joined together in Fellowship Hall to pack meals for the hungry, primarily school-age children in desperate need. About 100 cheerful souls swayed to the music, listened to the clanging of the gong as another thousand meals were boxed and smiled like there was no tomorrow. Over $6,200 dollars was raised enabling us to pack 31,884 meals.

Two years ago St. Matthew raised over $10,000 and was able to provide another 40,188 meals through Stop Hunger Now, an international relief agency headquartered in Raleigh, NC. With the successful event just recently held, St. Matthew and friends have now raised over $16,000 and packaged meals for 72,072 needy people in the two events held thus far.

Once again, everyone involved began talking about when we might do it again. There will no doubt be a Stop Hunger Now 3 in our future.   How does a total of over 100,000 meals sound when the time comes. It has a nice ring to it.

There is a
Place for You
at St. Matthew

There is a place for you in the faith community of St. Matthew Lutheran Church!  By grace through faith, we believe we are called to serve God by living and proclaiming the compassion of Jesus.  St. Matthew is blessed to be a large congregation, with a wide variety of ministry resources, programs, and opportunities.

Founded in 1743, St. Matthew is one of the oldest Lutheran faith communities on this continent.  Striving to be ever faithful to the calling of Christ-centered ministry, St. Matthew continually seeks to honor a sense of tradition while encouraging an innovative approach to the question:  what does it mean to be a Christian today?

As you explore this site, we hope that you will discover, if you do not already have a church home, that St. Matthew Lutheran Church is a place for you!
