St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church of Woodbridge Virginia is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA). We are a community that fosters faith, service, and spiritual growth. We invite you to share our life in Christ.
ALL are welcome here!
Visiting a new church can be a bit intimidating, and we know that! To help ease the nerves, we’ve created a section of information about what to expect when visiting Saint Matthew’s. Please contact us if you need more information.
In Christ’s Name, ALL are welcome here!
We are part of the Metropolitan Washington Synod, which includes the areas of Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.
Evangelism Study Pastor Zimmerer will facilitate a conversational book study and discussion on the state of the church in our culture today. We will be using two books: Simple Church by Thom Ranier and Rebuilt by Michael White & Tom Corcoran. We will be discussing where the “Church fits in” to people’s lives these days and how we at St. Matthew’s might respond to our ever-changing culture and society. Topics include: outreach, discipleship, Bible and worship styles. We will meet in the conference room.
The class schedule is: Oct 1st and 15th @ 7:00 pm,
Nov 5th and 19th @ 7:00 pm
Dec 10th @ 7:00 pm
