Sunday’s Worship Service

Greatest Of All Time

Online Worship
We are now offering online worship participants the opportunity to join in the sacrament of Holy Communion. With each service posted, we will provide instructions on how to prepare the elements for worship. You may use your own wine or grape juice together with bread or crackers. Consider placing the bread on a plate and using a cup or individual juice glass. Communion packets are also available for your use. You may stop by the St. Matthew Church office to pick them up or call 717-637-7101 or e-mail info@stmattlutheran.org.

In the mystery of Holy Communion, our Lord is truly present in the words spoken and the elements received whether we are at church or in our homes.
