What To Expect
Worship is a central part of who we are. Through word, music, and action (sacrament), we seek to understand the Father, grow closer to Jesus, and we are given life in the Holy Spirit.
There are many different ways to worship our immense God, and St. Matthew's tries to offer something for everyone. Please see our service descriptions and times below.

Children: We offer a vibrant children’s program. Please check our children's page for more information.
Coffee Hour: Community is an important part of St. Matthew’s. We gather for coffee hour in person or virtually after the 9:30 am, 11 am or Unity service.
Masking: At this point it is up to those attending if they want to mask or not. We ask that you be considerate to those that still want to remain masked and distant. Our communion ministers and prayer anointers will remain masked for the time being.
Communion: Most Sundays are communion services where we serve both bread and wine. All Christians are welcome to receive. If you would rather like a blessing from the priest you can cross your arms over your chest. If you are not comfortable receiving the common cup, you are welcome to just put your hand on the base to have the words spoken over you.
Anointing: Every communion service, at communion we have someone at the back of the church ready to anoint you or pray over you. We welcome all prayers, even those you can't speak.
Attend virtually: We continue to offer Sunday services online as well as in person. Contact the office by 2 pm on Friday for the link, or request to receive our weekly email to receive the link (and information about all the other wonderful things happening at St. Matthew’s).
