St. Matthew’s is…
We are people who know that as hard as we try, perfection is not possible (unless you know something we don’t).With words from the Bible, classical and modern music, prayers and Holy Communion, we nurture ourselves with God’s unconditional love.
Individually and together, we challenge ourselves with questions about God, our world, and its people. We like the way Jesus lived and are empowered by His grace and compassion in the world!
Our community is LGBTqi inclusive (that’s why our sanctuary looks faaaaabulous). Our deaf ministry is one of the few on Southern California and provides an all-ASL worship service. We’re proud of our diversity!
Things to know:
- Comfortable clothing is encouraged (Pro Tip: Dressy flip-flops are a great way to step up your Sunday attire).
- We serve free lunch, every Sunday following worship. This is a great time to enjoy each others’ company. We can’t promise vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free (it’s a potluck after all), but there’s usually something for everyone.
- We are a progressive Christian Congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA).
