When Should I Arrive?
We recommend arriving 5 to 10-minutes prior to our service times. This will allow you to grab a service folder, meet our greeters, and find a seat.
Where Can I Park?
Street parking is available on Lawerence Street. We have handicapped parking available in our Lawence Street lot near door #4. Our North Lot is reserved for seniors, expectant mothers, and those who have limited mobility needs.
What Can I Expect at a Service?
Our service begins with some opening remarks by our Pastor, an occasional informational video, and an introduction to worship. We then hear the ringing of the bells followed by the opening song.
How Should I Dress?
Sometimes people wonder how they are expected to dress at a church they have never visited before. Since the Bible presents no dress code, aside from simple decency and Christian humility, St. Matthew Lutheran Church doesn’t make any rules either. On any weekend at our church you may see suits and jeans, high heels and tennis shoes, t-shirts and ties. When a person dresses out of love for God, the choice of casual dress or more formal is acceptable to God and to us.
Can I Bring Children to Service?
Yes! The word of God is for all, and we welcome children to attend our services. We have children’s bags, which are filled with coloring pages and quiet activities, available at the main church entrance. If your child needs a little more room to roam during service, we have a children’s area availabe in the church basement. Our ushers can asisst you with any questions.
What Will You Want from Me?
We understand that attending a service in an unfamiliar church can be intimidating. You will not be hassled to provide any information or partake in our offerings.
