"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.

Training, Training, Training
Every year we train and retrain folks who wish to serve as ushers, lectors, cantors, greeters, acolytes, worship assistants, etc. To keep up with changes and implement new ideas, it is necessary to attend these training sessions, even if one has been, “doing this for years.”
Please watch for the various training schedules and times and make an effort to attend. You will not be put on the schedule without attending training, approval from the Worship & Music Ministry team lead for scheduling, or Pastor Christine.
