We believe that God has brought us together as His Church because he has a purpose for each of us, and for His Church in the world. We believe that the work of our church leaders is to equip us to live out that purpose. We know that together we can be and do what God has in mind for us, in ways that are better than on our own as individual believers.


Scripture calls parents to train their children in the faith and to nurture their children's souls and we want to help you as parents actively engage in your children's spiritual development.

Youth Ministry

The vision of our Children and Student Ministries is to help develop in each young person a deeper, more personal relationship with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to equip them for living out their faith. Children and Student Ministries are offered at both Walled Lake and Wixom campuses and include Sunday School classes and Bible Classes.

Children's Ministry

We love children because Jesus does! We welcome all children to our weekly activities on Sunday morning, to special children’s activities like Vacation Bible School, and to weekly international children’s classes, without cost to them.


We also desire to provide an even more comprehensive opportunity for children to grow in character and spirituality, and in living their lives of faith. This is the reason for the existence of St. Matthew School in Walled Lake and of Hearts and Hands Child Development Center in Wixom.

Human Care

We seek to extend Christ's abundant hope and healing love to our members, friends, and community whenever needs arise. Trained care givers care for the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of individuals during times of change, crisis, and challenge. Care is provided through prayer, listening, healing words, cards, encouragement, and visitation.

International Friends

International Friends offers help and friendship to our international neighbors. All nationalities are welcome. We offer many classes and activities in easy English, especially for international adults and children. One of our staff members speaks Japanese, and we have the ability to translate materials into Japanese, Korean, German, and Spanish when needed.


Jesus gave his final instructions for us in several places in the Bible. We know His plan is for His church to finish His work here, so these instructions are for all of us. God’s plan for creation was that all should live in harmony together, forever. He wants all people to be in a loving relationship with Him, now and for eternity.

Holiday Family Assistance

Dear St. Matthew Family and Friends,

St. Matthew is again providing assistance to families this 2021 holiday season, as we have in years past. The streamlined process that was started last year was quite effective in aiding members of our community in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, and we believe that this process will again be the best method for helping families in 2021. Please see below for how our Holiday Family Assistance process will work this year.

How are we helping those in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas?
