The Sunday Nursery and all Sunday Schools for Children are canceled at this time.
St. Matthew's takes very seriously the commitment to see that all children know the love of Jesus!  We feel that children are a blessing to our church.  The children play an active role in our church prayer life, mission activity, and they even do an entire church service on the Children's Sabbath celebration in the fall.  We would love to have you join our St. Matthew's family on Sunday morning and let your children walk with Jesus! 
Weekly Activities
9:00am - Noon
Little Lambs
Quality childcare is available for our
young children during both services
and also during the Sunday School

Newborn - Toddler
Preschool I
This class offers more of a structured
approach to the Bible lessons. 
Children do crafts, sing, and hear
Bible stories each week from our
Cokesbury curriculum.
Preschool II
This class is more child directed in
activity.  We still have songs and a craft
each week, but there is alot more activity.
Children as young as 18 months are a part
of this program!
Lower Elementary
Cokesbury Curriculum is offered along
with a fellowship for church family as
they begin to experience daily
Christian living.
Upper Elementary
Cokesbury Curriculum is offered as the
children begin to seriously study the
Bible and the stories that it offers. 
They now begin to fully grasp the love
Christ and what that means in their life!
Both Sunday Services
Children's Church
During both services, children are offered a
Children's Sermon at the altar.  Children
ages two through third grade are invited
for a a time of Children's Church.
Each week, a different set of volunteers
offer a Bible lesson, along with music, craft,
prayer, and, of course, food!  They then
return to worship at the end of the hour.
Don't be surprised if you see our children
dancing in the aisles with friends at our
Contemporary Worship, as they offer
praise in a joyful manner!
