Sunday Mornings at St. Matthew's

It is a time we gather as believers to fellowship, pray, praise, and hear from God's Word together. 


  • Come as you are - We are a church of people from all walks of life, and we want you to feel comfortable worshiping with us. "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?" Matthew 6:25
  • Bring the kids - We're a family friendly church, welcoming people of all ages. There is space in the back of church for handicap access, as well as for families with small children and/or nursing moms.                 "Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' "  Matthew 19:14
  • Truth - We are a church that stands on all the truths of the Bible. We encourages and assists people to be in the word, and to study it for themselves.                                                "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16

Our worship services include music and a time of teaching. Our music is a mixture of new music and traditional hymns, and our Pastor teaches every week from the Bible. 


We would love for you to join us on a Sunday morning. We meet at 9:30 AM for worship and 10:45 AM for Bible Study every Sunday morning at our church building at 121 Kline St. 


Hope to see you there!

In the Word

As we continue our two year Bible reading program through Today's Light Bible,

here are the answers to last weeks questions (Genesis 23 to Genesis 35):

 

What is similar about Jacob leaving Canaan and returning to Canaan, and what is different?

 

Similarities:

- Jacob is running away because someone has become a threat to him.

(Genesis 27:41, Genesis 31:1-2)

- God speaks to Jacob in a dream and promises him blessings.

(Genesis 28:12-15, Genesis 31:11-13)

Differences:

- He leaves by himself and returns with a large family.

(Genesis 28:10, Genesis 31:17-18)

- He deceived his father Isaac, and himself was deceived by Laban

(Genesis 27:21-29, Genesis 31:38-42)

 

 

What was God doing throughout that portion of Jacob's life?

 

Continually making sure that His promises and plan of salvation were being fulfilled through Jacob as God had said they would be. God was also working to help Jacob rely more on God and less on himself. See Genesis 25:22-23, 28:12-15, 31:11-13, and 32:22-30.

 

 

Our Bible reading continues with Week 4: Genesis 36 through Genesis 44.

Here are the questions for this week:

 

As you read Genesis chapters 39 and 40 pay special attention to Potiphar and answer these questions:

 

Who was Potiphar?

 

 

As a slave Joseph had no rights, so when Potiphar's wife accused Joseph of trying to rape her Potiphar had every right to have him executed. But Potiphar didn't do that. What did Potiphar do with Joseph instead of having him killed?

 

 

Where was the prison where Pharaoh's chief cupbearer and chief baker were sent?

 

 

Who was it that assigned the cupbearer and baker to be taken care of by Joseph?

 

 

Go back and reread Genesis 39:3-6. Why do you think Potiphar put Joseph where he did instead of having him killed?
