Faith Formation for the St. Matthew’s Family is taking on a new name this year, “Village Church.” This stems from the common saying that “it takes a village to raise a child.” We at St. Matthew’s believe int he power of intergenerational relationships and formation. We invite all members of our parish family – not just those with young children – to join us for worship for all ages. On these Sundays, all formation classes are combined (Godly Play, Growing in Christ, Youth, and Sunday Forum).

January 5: Epiphany Join us in the Fellowship Hall as we resume our program year by celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany, or “Three Kings Day,” when we commemorate the visit of the Magi to the Christ child and the revelation of God with us in Christ.
February 16 – Secret Pals: Join us at 9:15am in the Fellowship Hall for a beloved St. Matthew’s tradition: The Secret Pals Breakfast. In January, children in the congregation were matched with an adult “Secret Pal” who sends them treats and clues to their identity the week leading up to the breakfast. The Secret Pals will be revealed at breakfast! All are invited to come to the breakfast, whether a secret pal or not.
