The Arts

St. Matthew has a rich history of being involved with the arts. From Chancel Choirs to Children's Choirs, Orchestra to Handbells, and Drama to Sheltered Reality Drummers, we have enlisted the talents of our members and friends to enhance worship services and provide wholesome entertainment at special events. If you are interested in being a part of the arts, please contact the church office at 654-5575 and let us know how you'd like to participate.
