Central St. Matthew UCC Christian Education

At Central St. Matthew, we believe that the Christian life must be nurtured through education and study in an environment of affirmation and fellowship. We offer a full range of opportunities for education and spiritual growth for children and adults. These include

  • Sunday morning classes
  • Weekly Bible study on Zoom
  • A monthly daytime book club

We also offer special Advent and Lenten studies, as well as occasional  forums concerning current issues and challenges within our neighborhood and the larger community.
