Baptisms at St. Matthew's

We at St. Matthew's want you and your family to enjoy fully the privilege of Christian Baptism. Some explanations are therefore offered here, and classes are required for those who come to Baptism. Baptism in the Church is full initiation into Christ's Body the Church and is offered both to adults and children.

Weddings at St. Matthew's

The decision to marry is one of the greatest and most joyous decisions in life. We at St. Matthew's share your joy and excitement and are eager to assist you in making your wedding a wonderful and memorable occasion for you and all your loved ones. We also believe that Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and woman in the presence of God and His people to commit to marriage. We have developed a process for premarital preparation and have limited the use of the church facilities to members and their children.

Funerals at St. Matthew's

At St. Matthew's Church, as in all Christian churches, we believe very deeply in our Lord's promise of eternal life to all who trust in and seek to be obedient to Christ. We certainly view the service for the burial of the dead as a solemn moment in the life of the Church, reminding us all of our physical mortality. But we also see this time as one in which we can be reminded to give thanks again to God for caring about us enough to send His Son that we might have the gift of eternal life. In this way the burial service is an Easter service with the focus on the resurrection.
