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 14,470 pipes and 238 ranks.  Enjoy this brief video. Then come hear the magnificent sounds in person. St. Matthew is truly blessed.

If you were unable to attend the recent Adam Brakel Concert at St. Matthew, here is a sampling of what you missed. Octaves, by Jeanne Demessieux (1921-1968), was the final piece of a brilliant concert. Those attending marveled at Adam Brakel's incredible footwork and amazing hand speed. Rarely do you hear “Bravo” spontaneously erupt at an organ concert in a church. That was not the case here. Enjoy.

Planning Help Needed for Meal Packing Event

Our Social Ministry Committee has designated the 2018 St. Matthew Local Mission Project to be our 4th Bi-Annual Hanover Area Community Meal Packing Event. But we need your help to plan, organize and promote this spiritually charged and highly successful event to feed the hungry. Our ambitious goals are to double the results of our past three events combined: packing 100,000 meals, involving 500+ community members and raising $29,000. This year we hope to expand the program and involve even more churches, civic groups, businesses, clubs, professional organizations, schools and local residents in two packing sessions on Saturday, November 3, in Fellowship Hall. To learn how you can become involved in this exciting event, please visit our Event Page or contact us via eMail.

St Matthew offers three healing services a year at the Worship part of SAW, our Wednesday evening gathering. Keep watching for our next service.
