Our Ministries

A ministry for everyone!

Adult Faith Formation

Do you have questions?  Are you seeking to grow in faith?  Here are some opportunities for discipleship.     

Bible Study - Sundays After Worship

Our Sunday Bible Study is currently focusing on the lectionary readings for the week.  Following worship, we join together to ask questions about the readings we encounter every Sunday morning.  All are welcome.    

Diving Deeper - Mondays @12:30pm 

What does it mean that we are called to be a disciple and apostle of Christ?  Join us every Monday as we take an in depth look at the book of Acts and how it speaks to us today about living out our faith.   

Women of the ELCA - WELCA

From Labor Day to Memorial Day, our women's group meets in the Ed building on the third Thursday of every month at 1pm.  We connect in God's Word using Bible studies from the Gather magazine.  We connect in fellowship over sweet treats.  You are invited to join us in this time together.  

If you have ideas for other ways we can connect as women in the church, please contact Pastor Rheanna or Diane Tallman.  

Technology and Communications

Are you interested in how technology can play a part in our worship and ministry life at St. Matthew's?  We are excited to announce a new ministry here that focuses on meeting God in 21st century ways. 

If you would like to join in helping us, please contact Tim Goodrich at


Do you love to sing?  Would you like to lead the congregation in praise?  We would love to have you join our St. Matthew's Choir.  

Praising God

Our choir meets each Thursday night at 4pm to practice pieces for Sunday worship and special occasions.  Your voice is always welcome! (No practice on March 12th or April 2nd.)


Summer Spontaneous Choir

During the summer, our regular choir takes a break, but we're not done singing yet.  On certain Sundays, we will form a spontaneous choir.  If you would like to join us in leading a special hymn for the day, we meet on those days at 9am in Ed building behind the church to practice.

If you have been interested in singing, but something's been holding you back, this pop up song, might just be perfect for you.

Church and Society

Discipleship - learning to be more like Jesus -  is only part of the journey.  We are called in to be sent out for the sake of the world.  Our Church and Society commission helps to connect us with those most in need in our Community.     

Mission of the Month

Every month we take offerings for mission work outside of our congregation. 


Our "Local Needs" focus for the month of January is the Mitten tree for Samaritas Community Center and the I Support the 1% Food Pantry.



Food Focus

This month's collection focus is for the Saginaw Meetro Monistries.  We are accepting donations of "soup and crackers" making a vareity of meals for those supplied by the food pantry. 


Please remember that the food pantries can’t use expired items so watch the sell by dates.   


You can drop your offerings off in the sanctuary entrance and folks from the commission will take it to the pantry.



Taking Steps Against Hunger 

On the 4th Sunday every September, St. Matthew's hosts a run/walk to raise funds for three area food pantries.  100% of the funds raised goes out into the community to help those who are hungry.  


If you are interested in helping out, or becoming a sponsor for our 2020 race, please check back here in the future as we are preparing for next year.  You may also call the main church office or check out our facebook page "Taking Steps Against Hunger" for more details. 


If you are interested in registering as a participant online, please check back as it gets closer to race day 2020!
