Kids’ Power Hour

Sundays during the 10:30 am service from mid-September to mid-May

Children, Kindergarten through Grade 4, are invited to participate with their parents in the first 15-20 minutes of worship. Prior to the sermon the children gather for a brief Children’s Message, and then are dismissed to their classrooms. Through a variety of teaching methods, children will learn all about the New and Old Testament, Jesus, His life, and God’s great love for them.

Adult Information Class

Usually held three times a year, at various intervals, this is a ten-week program which examines and reviews the chief teachings of Scripture and the Lutheran church. All people interested in learning basic Biblical teachings, those interested in joining and communing with us here at St. Matthew, or members who would like to brush up on their Biblical knowledge and Luther’s Small Catechism are encouraged to attend.

Adult Bible Study

Sundays 9:15-10:15 am, September to May

An adult Bible study meets every Sunday between worship services. An informative and interactive study, it challenges people to ask questions and to search the Scriptures together with one of the Pastors for God’s answers. All adults are welcome.
