Perfect Love Casts Out FearLenten Season at St. Matthew's | February 17 - April 1
Support Our Youth Ministry
Special Offerings collected during Lent will be dedicated towards the High School Mission trip this year and the ELCA Youth Gathering next Summer.
Faith Formation & Devotionals During Lent
PreK thru 5th Grade Children
Parents can pick up Lent at Home kits for your children on Sundays February 7 or February 14 from 11:00 AM – Noon. Watch the video to the right with more details from Pastor Emily about the faith-building activities within the kits!
First Communion Classes Being Offered During Lent
All who were in the classes we began in 2020 are invited back as well as anyone looking to better understand the sacrament of Holy Communion and children participating in their first communion. We are hoping to offer one class on Zoom and one in-person class closer to Easter, as long it is safe to due so.
If you are interested in participating in these classes, please contact Pastor Emily.
Make a Prayer Chain
Make a prayer chain! Everyone is invited to make a prayer chain during Lent using purple and white strips of paper. 2nd-5th graders received them in their Lent-At-Home kits, we have extras for anyone who might want one, or cut your own strips to make your own! We invite you to write the name of a family, individual, or organization on a strip each day during Lent.
Daily Devotionals Available on Facebook
Our Lenten daily devotions will be based on music and scripture this year following the theme of “Perfect Love Casts Out Fear”. Our high school students put together a Spotify playlist for all members to listen to throughout the Lenten season. Each day on Facebook and in our weekly emails, we will offer a song and scripture passage to reflect on.
