"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.

Dream Academy at St. Stephen’s
In partnership with St. Stephen’s, we were able to provide gifts, dinner, cookie decorating and a great party for over 20 children and their families. Additionally, we had enough cash donations to fund another party for the children later in the school year. Thanks to all who donated!!
During 2018, St. Matthew’s donated over ONE THOUSAND pounds of food to Crossroads Urban Center to be distributed to undeserved families in our community. This does not include any of the food items shared with community members in The Little Pantry or the numerous diapers and cans of formula that were also donated. The Outreach Ministry would like to thank everyone in the congregation for their generous donations throughout the year. We could not do it without you!!
The next Outreach Ministry Meeting is Monday February 11th at 6:30. All are welcome!
Imposition Of Ashes
Ash Wednesday Services will be held on March 6, 2019 at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary. This brief but important time in the church calendar initiates the beginning of Lent – a time for prayerful reflection and repentance.
“The sign of the ashes suggests our human mortality and frailty. With the cross on our brow, we long for the spiritual renewal that flows from the springtime Easter feast to come.” Sundays and Seasons – Cycle C - 2019
