Growing in Faith, Walking in Love
God's love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Welcome to St. Matthew's United Methodist Church
We are a gentle community of people who care about love, spiritual growth and social justice. We welcome everybody regardless of race, status, sexual identity or religious background. We hope to help people discover the Divine in their lives, and live in harmony with God's grace.
We follow our teacher Jesus, not because we are commanded to believe certain things, but because he embodies Truth. He is deeply in tune with God, with Creation, and with human life. He shows us God, and we want God in our lives. He shows us a new kind of consciousness that we want to practice. He shows us love that changes us, and has the power to change the world.
We're theologically diverse and welcoming. We read the Bible, and let it "read" us; we don't hit people over the head with it. We want to live in harmony with the Loving Mystery that dwells within and among us and in all Creation. Whatever your story is, God is in it, and you are welcome among us as we discover God in new ways. As we journey together in faith, hope, and love, St. Matthew’s is a safe, nourishing place for spiritually curious people.
