Adults & Young Adults

Adults at St Matthew find connection with others and opportunities to learn and serve.

Adult Forum

Adult Forum meets in the Gathering Space throughout the School Year from 9:40-10:40 AM. Pastors and lay leaders facilitate discussion of many topics that engage our faith. Come once in a while or every week.

Evening Readers 

Do you like to read and discuss with a group? Evening Readers does just that. We meet the 2nd Monday 7:00 PM each month in the Conference Room. Contact: Debbie Steinberg ( )

Prayer Shawl Ministry

What is the PSM at St. Matthew?  Prayer Shawl Ministry. Volunteers knit or crochet a variety of prayer shawls for gifting to members and/or friends of St. Matthew.  Some needle workers gather once a month to work, share prayer concerns; some work at home and add their shawls to the inventory.  Inventory is stored in a designated closet in the Nursery Room.  Shawls are made of machine washable yarns.   Pocket prayer shawls are also available — small, the size of a bookmark, easy to carry with you. 


Ways to support the PSM at St. Matthew -- Pray for us! Attend a monthly meeting to learn more, purchase 3 skeins of homespun yarn [all one color or a variety of colors] and leave them in the PSM bag in the coat closet nearest the Office.   Questions? Contact Sandy Betsch (


Bible Study

Our morning Bible Study meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM.  Our evening Bible Study meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 6:00 PM. These Bible Studies connect the Bible to every day living.  No experience necessary!


Other Educational Offerings

Seasonal educational offerings for adults continue the life long learning of faith.
