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 you visit our home. This information is also available on other portions of our website, but we are glad to answer any questions you may have about our community, feel free to email us!
As members of the congregation, we make a covenant to support and nurture our life together in the name of Christ, in faithful and diligent use of the means of Grace, in prayer, in study and by our common efforts in support of the Church, as we seek to be God’s servants in His world.

Where are we located?
Please use our map to find directions to our church. We have ample parking surrounding our entire buildling with handicap access at both entrances. When leaving our parking lot, please exercise caution at the light onto Old Bridge Road!
Children of all ages!
We welcome all children to each worship service, as we are all Children of God. But if you would like, we offer a nursery staffed by at least two people for each service for children up through 3 years of age.
Offering of our treasure
After the sermon, an offering will be collected. Ushers will come forward, receive the plates, and begin to pass the plates around. This offering is a chance for the members to financially support the work of the Saint Matthew’s community in response to the grace and blessings from God. You are neither expected nor required to place anything in the offering plates, however, you are certainly welcome to share if you would like!
