"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 has chosen a new provider, named Tithe.ly, to manage it’s online giving. Make one-time donations or set-up a giving schedule that meets your needs. Tithe.ly will do the work for you, making your giving easy and convenient.

Utah has the fifth highest rate of suicide in the United States. We may say that is a tragedy but not take any action. Here’s your chance to take some action to bring awareness to this cause and be part of the solution.
On January 11, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. St. Matthew’s will host QPR Training. QPR stands for Questions, Persuade, Refer. These three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question with caring, persuade with hope, and refer someone with assistance to get help and safe a life.
Training can be for anyone and QPR can be learned in as little at 60 minutes. Please consider registering for this free training to bring awareness to this important cause in our community.
Contact Pastor Christine to register.
Winter Warm Clothing Drive

Gently used or new items needed for men, women and children are gloves, mittens, scarves, hats, coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, pajamas, socks, and blankets. Now is a good time to start cleaning out your closets in preparation for the drive.
