Known in the community as "the little church with the wide open doors." St. Matthew's welcomes and invites you to enter our church family fellowship as we worship together our wonderful Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus.
St. Matthew's Lutheran Church has been meeting the spiritual needs of people in the community since 1915. It was founded by German residents who began to settle in the area. We are located on the corner of Jefferson Street and Alter Avenue in Dongan Hills.
Family Worships is at 11:00 A.M. each Sunday throughout the calendar year. Solid, Bible-based sermons are preached at every service. Hymns of praise and thanksgiving are also an essential part of each Sunday's service. Holy Communion is offered every Sunday and during special holiday services, and Baptisms are performed when needed.
For the children of our congregation and community, we hold Sunday School at 9:45 A.M. every Sunday that public school is in session. And during the summer, we hold a week of Vacation Bible School for children aged 3 through 5th grade from 9:30 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.
