Who We Are
St. Matthew's is a warm and vibrant church where people of all ages gather to worship God and enjoy each other's company. We’re committed to developing relationships among all the generations and sharing our gifts with the wider community.
Our purpose is to embrace all people with the love of Jesus through joyful worship rooted in contemporary preaching and teaching, traditional worship, ministries for all generations, and reaching out to those in need.
The Episcopal Church
Most of our congregation was not born into The Episcopal Church. We came to it, drawn by the ancient beauty of its Prayer Book worship, or by its encouragement of hard questions, or its commitment to helping those in need. We are a diverse church, united in common prayer and in our commitment to "seek and serve Christ in all persons."
The mission of the Episcopal Church is "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ." At St. Matthew's, we strive to do this in many ways. The Episcopal Church draws from both the Protestant and Catholic traditions. It is part of the Anglican Communion, churches around the world in communion with the Church of England. Member churches share a common heritage and commitment to the authority of scripture, tradition, and reason.
