Easter Egg-Stravaganza!


Our 2018 family Easter event is on Saturday March 31st from 10AM to 12PM.  We will have an egg hunt with over 5000 eggs! After the hunt, we'll open many stations outdoors and throughout the building for your family. Enjoy face painting, balloon twisters, photo booths, bounce houses, crafts, and food! 


*This is a family event, bring your kids and stay with them for the fun!  

**The Easter Eggstravaganza is designed for children 4th Grade and younger, but we will not turn anyone away!  


Operation Christmas Child

On Sunday, Oct 22nd we launched "Operation Christmas Child" as an opportunity for our church family to make a tangible difference in the lives of children in need all over the world. Your role is to fill a shoe box with gifts for a child and return it St. Matthew on or before Sunday Nov 19th. We are also asking for $9 per box to cover the shipping.

What kind of Box?
You can use the pre-printed red/green cardboard box, a standard size shoe box, or a similar sized clear plastic tub (lid/container wrapped seperately).

What goes in the box? 
- A wow item (shoes, outfit, musical instrument, stuffed animal)
- Small toys (toy cars, jump ropes, yo-yo’s)
- Non-Liquid Hygiene items (toothbrush, bar soap, comb/brush)
- School supplies (pens, pencils, crayons, markers, coloring books)
- A personal Note (a message to the child, and a photo of yourself if you wish)
- Click here for more suggestions.

*Do not include: candy, toothpaste, used or damaged items, war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.

Who is the gift for specifically?

• 2-4 year old boy
• 5-9 year old boy
• 10-14 year old boy
• 2-4 year old girl

When do we return our box?
You can bring it to St. Matthew anytime between now and Sunday November 19th. Together we will pray for these boxes at our services that weekend.

How do I pay the $9 shipping?
We have special envelopes at the drop off table in the lobby. Make your check out to St. Matthew Lutheran.
