Our music ministry is a vital component of our worship experience. Choir meets on Wednesday nights, and all are welcome to join. We are blessed with a partnership with Baylor School of Music, and we often have several Baylor music students and faculty singing with and playing for us.
Alongside the strong music ministry here at St. Matthew, the Fine Arts Ministry has encouraged the expression of worship through the visual arts. Each year, they host Art as Worship, an art exhibition and benefit, which is open to any artists who wish to participate. Additional information can be found at fineartsministry.blogspot.com
Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis, but there are always many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. Talk with Pastor Kelsey or contact the church office to learn more.

Our quilters meet weekly for fun, fellowship, and fine craftsmanship. Creating up to 100 quilts each year, we are honored to donate these colorful comfort items to Lutheran World Relief.
