December: We will observe Advent Tuesday evening
services at 7:00 PM
The four Sundays that precede Christmas will
find us lighting a new candle of the wreath each week. It is
a time of waiting and preparing for the Lord. While the secular
world offers multiple ways to misplace the message of Christmas
through buying and consuming, Advent remains a time-honored
precaution against that. The Bible texts for the season tell
about Christ's entry into our world the first time, and his
return in the future. The songs of the season will speak as
well, songs like "Oh, Come, Oh, Come, Emmanuel".
We hope you will join us.
This year two presentations will be at our Special Planetarium
Conference Room. The presentations will be on Thursday
12/15/16 starting a 7:00PM and on Saturday 12/17/16
starting at 1:00PM. There is no charge! All are welcome!
We hope you can be there with us!
Because Christmas Eve is on a Saturday, we will not hold
our usual Saturday 5:30 PM service, but we will meet for our
candle light service at 7:00 PM. Christmas Day's Communion
service will begin at 10:00AM.
Our small groups keep going strong, and there is a place
for you! Men's group, Women's group, Youth group, Sunday School,
Choir, Adult class, Quilters, all these are open to you. At
St. Matthew Lutheran Church you will find many opportunities
to learn, to serve, and to be among friends who share your
