Probably nowhere else on earth will you find
a church building with its own planetarium, or a fully-dressed
centurion, or a full-scale replica of the Ark of the Covenant.
These are just some of the learning tools already secured by
Bible Alive, a unique ministry meant to engage people in the
Scriptures in a variety of fascinating ways.
The Ten Commandments and The Temple in Jesus Day
Exodus Period Royal Egyptian Chariot
The Shroud of Turin
Each year we present "The Census and the Star",
a thorough exploration of the biblical texts about Jesus' birth.
This is one of several planetarium offerings from our church to
We also offer everyone the chance to view our exact
copy of the Shroud of Turin, and now also a likeness of the Sudarium
of Oviedo (the face cloth). This is another experience Bible Alive
at St. Matthew Lutheran Church makes possible, an experience that
cannot be found even in major cities.
These, and other ways of bringing the Bible
to life for people today. This is what Bible Alive is about.
