Maui Wildfire Relief

The island of Maui, Hawaii recently endured one of the worst natural disasters in recent American history ... We pray for the many who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, livelihoods, and more in the devesatating wildfires. The California, Nevada, and Hawaii District of our Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod is active in relief efforts. You can learn more and donate by clicking here. An additional Recognized Service Organization of the LCMS, Lutheran Church Charities, is also serving in Hawaii. (LCC is most known for their Lutheran Comfort Dogs ministry.)

2023 Fall Kick-Off Meal

Please plan to join us on Sunday, September 10, 2023. We'll have Bible study and Sunday school at 9:00am, introducing our plans for fall for both of these groups. After our 10:00am worship service, we'll share in a "Fall Kick-Off Meal." This will include a grill-out and potluck. Hamburgers, hotdogs, condiments and buns will be provided. Attendees are asked to bring something to share for the meal. We look forward to growing in Christ with you this fall at St. Matthew!

Meetings in August
