Pastor Julie Reuning-Scherer

Senior Pastor

Pastor Julie came to St. Matthew in 2017 to support their fine ministries of worship, education, and music, as well as to connect the congregation with the broader community and new ministry partners. Together pastor and people look forward to a renewed focus on connecting the gifts and needs of the people of St Matthew, the communities in which they reside, and the broader world, so that Christ’s love may be more fully known.

Ordained in Manchester, CT, in 1997, Pastor Julie has served four different parishes and resided in the Greater Hartford area for 20 years.  She is a wife and mother of two teenagers, a student of yoga and a lover of singing, a low maintenance housekeeper and a potluck foodie, and passionate voice for connecting faith, daily life, and scripture.
