Central St Matthew UCC: Who We Are

No matter where you are on life’s journey,
you are welcome here.

Central St. Matthew UCC is an open and affirming congregation. We welcome into full worship life and membership persons of every race, language, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, and economic level.

We recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us and hold that discrimination is incompatible with the Gospel of Christ.

We commit ourselves to work diligently to end all oppression and discrimination which afflict God’s people in our society. At Central St. Matthew UCC, we affirm that all relationships are founded upon the principles of God’s love and justice.


Central St Matthew UCC  values both the inner life of prayer and the spiritual journey, as well as the outer life of expressing God’s love in our local community. Within our community, we offer opportunity for friendships to grow, knowledge of God to increase, and love to abound.


If we had to sum up our mission and ministry, we would say, “We care!”

We care about one another, we care about our community, and we care about the world in which we live.

Come join us in a community of caring.

But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an everflowing stream.
