4th of July Eucharist Service

Come to our 4th of July eucharist service at 10:00 am. This celebration begins with a festive prelude played on the Church bells followed by a service incorporating patriotic songs from the 1982 Hymnal.

Episcopal Church history is inexorably linked to the American Revolution and our political and religious split from England.  Lessons and prayers for observing this day were a part of the Proposed Prayer Book of 1786 but were deleted from the approved 1789 BCP with the recognition that most clergy had sided with the Crown during the revolution. Our current Prayer Book has restored Independence Day as a Major Feast of the Church Year. Childcare available.

Visitors are always welcome!

Pentecost, June 9

This Sunday June 9th is Pentecost! Pentecost is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year in the Episcopal Church and is a feast where baptisms occur. It is also a Celebrate Sunday on St. Matthew’s calendar. The liturgical color for the feast is red so wear red this Sunday!

According to the Episcopalian Dictionary of the Church, the Pentecost event was the fulfillment of a promise which Jesus gave concerning the return of the Holy Spirit. The speaking in tongues, which was a major effect of having received the Spirit, is interpreted by some to symbolize the church’s worldwide preaching.
