Changes to Services Starting March 2020
With the current local and state shelter-in-place orders, the Episcopal Church of St. Matthew has created online opportunities for our community to stay connected.
There is one online-only service on Sundays at 10:00 am PT. You can access the live Sunday service on our Facebook page. The video will be posted on this website after the live video concludes. A weekly Children’s Chapel Storytime video will be available by Saturday on our Facebook page and our website.
8:00 am Holy Eucharist, Rite I: Service of Holy Eucharist, using the traditional language of The Book of Common Prayer, accompanied by organ and soloist. A time of fellowship and refreshments follows in Julie Beylard Hall, located behind the church.
10:15 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II: A festive celebration of Holy Eucharist, using the more contemporary language of The Book of Common Prayer, accompanied by organ and the St. Matthew’s Chancel Choir. Nursery care is provided from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, at no cost, staffed by screened and “Safe Church Trained” care providers in the day school library.
- Services in our main sanctuary and chapel are handicap accessible.
- Audio Enhancement Devices can be located in the back of the church, by the parking lot door.
- We offer gluten-free wafers. Please let an usher know so they can communicate with the clergy, or simply tell the clergy at the time of reception.
- Communion is offered in the main altar (steps). Communion can also be brought to your seat, if accessibility is a concern, simply inform an usher upon your arrival.
