Note that for the time being, St. Matthew’s is not gathering in person. We have plans to begin distanced gatherings in early September; stay tuned. In the meantime, email us so that we can keep you in the loop for Sunday worship resources, prayer requests, and occasional videoconference virtual Communion services.
It is hard to do anything “wrong” at St. Matthew’s: you are welcome to participate in worship as you wish, in a spirit of respect for one another.
You may find that there are a lot of papers to follow during worship; if you prefer, set the papers aside, relax and go with the flow.
All are welcome to take Communion or not, as comfortable.
If you prefer, you may cross your arms in front of you to receive a blessing instead of bread and wine at Communion.
Some worshippers also light a candle in prayer at Communion time.
