"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.

Winter Warm Clothing Drive
During the winter months we will be holding a 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. Items will go to a variety of non-profit agencies that St. Matthew’s supports such as Crossroads Urban Center, VOAD, the Rescue Mission, etc. Look for details coming soon.
