"We are called to proclaim God's grace by sharing the story of Jesus to bring light, hope and healing to the world"
Out of an abundance of care and concern for the health and well-being of the St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church community, the council and I are outlining the implementation of best practices during the current outbreak of the Coronavirus strain known as COVID-19. It is important to note that these changes are only temporary and are being utilized in order to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the most vulnerable members of our community.
A message from Pastor Christine Higueria-Street
regarding reopening St. Matthew's
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.

Outreach & Advocacy:
ELCA World Hunger: Chick Sale
Our world has changed with COVID-19 but the need is still there. Even though we can’t be together in service on Sundays we know we can count on you our St. Matthew’s family for your generous giving to World Hunger. Soon we will have a chick flying your way asking you to remember to donate to this worthy cause either through Simply Giving or by a check mailed into St. Matthews. We thank you!
St. Matthew’s Little Pantry
The need is greater than ever. Those that have been stopping by church have seen the food disappearing from our outside pantry! Our plan is working and we are helping meet the needs of those in our community. Since our food pantry is almost depleted we ask for your help. On Wednesdays, beginning May 6th from 6 -7 pm, non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the church. Your Outreach Team members will take the food into the church for you. They will be wearing masks and gloves. Please bring what you are able to (in can goods and dry goods). Your Outreach Team will be keeping the pantry stocked prior to this date to serve our community. Many hands make light work!
Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center
challenged by COVID-19
Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center, Brush, CO, is facing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) as six residents were confirmed with COVID-19. Those with the illness have been quarantined in the facility's cluster neighborhood. To meet the need for PPE, north Colorado volunteers are sewing gowns and caps using donated sheets and other fabrics. Sheets that are a blend (not just 100% cotton) provide a better barrier than all cotton sheets.
Here is how you can help:
Donate bed sheets, preferably those made of a poly-blend fabric –all sizes!
