"We are called to proclaim God's grace by sharing the story of Jesus to bring light, hope and healing to the world"
Worship is the center of our common life. Worship moves us to service. That service is supported by fellowship and community. Worship + Service + Community. We invite you to take part in these with us.
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, committed to hospitality, justice, inclusivity, mercy and joy in the name of Christ.
We serve the West Side of the Salt Lake Valley. Our congregation came into being in 1989 when St. Paul and Atonement Lutheran churches merged.
St. Matthew's is excited to provide the opportunity to give your tithes and offerings online in a safe and easy way. This system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution.
