Serve at St. Matthew’s

Your many gifts, when shared with others, can bring about God’s kingdom here on earth. 

Whether you sing opera, are great at knitting prayer shawls, enjoy supporting our youth, you are welcome to explore your gifts through the ministries at St. Matthew’s.

Scroll through the upcoming volunteer opportunities and feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!

Boy Scout Troop 1396

Boy Scouts of America Troop 1396 was chartered at St. Matthew’s in April 1989 and we have been collaboratively supporting and serving with them ever since. For the most recent updates, visit the troop website. 

Read During Worship

Email or call the church office at stmatthews@stmatthewsva.org 703-494-3090 if you would like to be on the list of lectors who are willing to read and participate in our Livestream service.

Calling All Singers!

The choirs at Saint Matthew’s are age-, not ability-, based. Reading music is not required, but is certainly helpful.  Share your gifts with the congregation by reaching out to our choir director, Kathy Lundgren, and get connected to a choir.
