Welcome home to St. Matthew! Whether you are a current member, a past member, or a guest, we’re so glad you stopped by today.

We hope that you will visit us at our current facility on the corner of Illinois Street and Lemont Street in 2019!

They have returned from NYG 2019 in Minneapolis, MN! Thank you to everyone who supported them raising funds through various events over the last three years in order to be able to attend this life-changing event! 



NYG 2022’s host site was just announced…Houston! 

“Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.  During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO.”
