Fellowship is defined as “a friendly association, especially with people who share one’s interests.” To foster a vibrant, spiritual community, our parish supports an array of programs and events for fellowship.

If you would like to join ONE OF OUR MANY PROGRAMS or MINISTRIES, learn more about membership, or speak to our clergy please contact the church office.

Ongoing Events

Coffee Hour

Everyone is invited to coffee hour following the service for a chance to grow in faith and fellowship. This is the center of our fellowship as we catch up with one another, discuss the sermon or other topics of interest, and get to know newcomers.  Food is provided. Occurs after both the 8:00 am and 10:15 am Sunday services.

Book Club

The St. Matthew’s Book Group meets five Wednesday evenings a year to discuss books chosen by the group. Selections include recent and classic fiction and nonfiction.  Recent books include: Some Assembly Required by Anne Lamott, My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor, The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier, and Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown.  The group is open to parishioners, Day School family members, and guests interested in books and conversation. Contact the church office to be added to the email distribution.
