Families with children discover a variety of opportunities and joys at St. Matthew’s Church. First of all, we know you could be anywhere else in the world on a Sunday morning, therefore we value the effort it takes to get a family dressed, fed and in the car for worship and Sunday school. We also realize that few families can make it to church every week. Work schedules, extended family commitments, sports and other activities are parts of modern life. You are welcome here whenever you can make it. We keep the light on for you! We want you to feel this is your family church for the long haul.
