Pastor Julie Reuning-Scherer

Senior Pastor

Pastor Julie 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 a passionate voice for connecting faith, daily life, and scripture.  She was ordained in Manchester, CT, in 1997 and has served four different parishes and resided in the Greater Hartford area for 20 years.

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 Jesus’ amazing grace may be more fully known.
