What a blessing it is to introduce you to our Church -- a place where you are welcomed to worship and experience a life-changing experience with God.

We are excited about our impending move to our new location at 2001 Brooks Drive, and hope you will join us not just for our grand opening, but on a regular basis thereafter.  At St. Matthews, we strive to become the kind of Church described in the Bible, where there's relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate caring. Our goal is to let our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ work through us to influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.

Please join us on Saturday, October 7th for our grand opening and dedication service.  Thereafter, please join us for our regularly scheduled services including:

Sunday School – 9:00 a.m.

Sunday Worship Service – 10:15 a.m.

Tuesday Night Bible Study – 7:00 p.m.

In the meantime, peruse our website to learn more about our Church family.  

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
(Matthew 18:20)

May God bless and keep you,

Rev. Dr. Maxwell M. Washington
