"Rejoicing in Christ, Empowered to Serve."
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.

Outreach Ministry Activities for June
The Calendar of Giving
Each month the Outreach Ministry will be asking for donations of specific items.
These food and clothing items will be used to stock the St. Matthew's Pantry and also donated to community organizations that serve those in need.
The requested item for the month of June is Cereal.
This Little Piggy…
During the first few Sundays in June we will be handing out “Piggy Banks” again for the ELCA World Hunger collection during the summer. Our goal is to exceed our giving last year of nearly $800 by Rally Day, September 10th. That would buy a pig for at least 25 families around the world!
For many living in global poverty according to ELCA’s World Hunger campaign, “A pig in the pen is money in the bank! A piglet is a perfect financial investment for many people around the world. That’s because within months this little piglet can grow to nearly 200 pounds and grab a great price at the market. Should a family have a failed harvest, medical expense or other unexpected need, this gift can be cashed in to make all the difference.”
So take home a pig or two…fill it up…bring it back when Sunday School resumes on Rally Sunday, September 10th.
Adult Forum – Church in Society
We will continue through the month of May to read excerpts from Martin Luther King, Jr’s. ‘Letter from the Birmingham Jail’ and explore the ELCA Social Statement, ‘Church in Society.’ We will also look at some of the other Social Statements which highlight our calling as faithful Christians in society.
