An update from our Parish Planning Council:

St. Matthews will remain open during this 2-week Stay-At-Home period. The Pastors, Youth Coordinator and Secretarial Staff will continue their regular hours and will be available to anyone as needed.  At this time, Bible studies, meetings, and other activities will  take place online rather than in the church building.

We will continue to live stream our Worship Services online via Facebook at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Weekly devotions, Bible Studies and other updates will be posted to our Facebook and Web pages.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time.

Blessings to you!

‚ÄúGod is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.‚ÄĚ

Coronavirus is in the news ...
If you need assistance during this time, contact the church office at  218-879-3510

Recently the  LCMS provided the following with regards to  the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Pray: Spare Your people,  O Lord! Preserve us from this and every illness. Give healing and strength to those who are sick, protect those who care for them, and grant us steady minds and calm hearts in the face of fear. You have borne our infirmities in this human flesh and purchased us with Your own blood. Keep us in this faith and embolden us in love; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

Keep Gathering: It should be our aim to continue to hold regular, physical services while possible. Come if you are well; stay home if you are sick or at increased risk. 

Keep in Touch: Organize and know how you will communicate as a congregation, especially if an outbreak occurs in your area and event plans must be changed.

Take Care: Wise personal hygiene practices and simple precautions can help limit the spread of infection. 

Take Courage: ‚ÄúGod is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble‚ÄĚ (Ps. 46:1). In life we are comforted by the Lord‚Äôs precious and very great promises; in death, we await the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
