OUR MINISTRY OF WORSHIP Our purpose as St. Matthew’s United Church of Christ is to proclaim through our individual and united actions and words that we are a family of believers in God’s love and saving grace as expressed and taught by Jesus Christ. The focus of our church life is activities which will capture this spirit of Christian faith. The Word of God in scripture is central in our worship. Our worship service is enhanced by our Adult and Children’s choirs and special musical services. The children’s message is an important part of our worship service and we strive to be an inclusive congregation for all ages. OUR MINISTRY OF FELLOWSHIP
