Family Ministries

St. Matthew ministries offer something for every age through both educational programs and fellowship opportunities.  There is a wide range of programs to fit each individual's interest and level of participation.

Children's Ministry

Children are one of the greatest gifts God has given us.  They are placed in our hands to nurture so that they may grow to rejoice in God's love in their own way and time.  We at St. Matthew UCC accept with joy the privilege and responsibility of helping children grow in their faith.  Our programs reflect this commitment. Children have opportunities to participate in worship, Christian education, mission, drama, music, and fun activities - in short, to be full partners in the ministries of the church.

The Library program includes care and maintenance of the Church Library and audio visual materials.  There is a quiet place to read and check out a rotating selection of books. Our Children's library offers books, movies, puzzles, and games in a cozy area.

We encourage members to take advantage of these resources and checkout materials.
