Dear St. Matthew’s Lutheran Family and Friends,

June 24, 2022, was an historic day as the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the legislation that legalized abortion nationwide.  This decision allows individual states to restrict or prohibit abortions.  With solemn thanks we praise God for this decision that may serve to protect the unborn and honor the life that God gives.

Since this is such a “hot” topic it might be easy for us to be silent about the ramifications of the Supreme Court’s decision.  Or to go to the opposite extreme, we might be tempted to say or post comments that would only be taken as loveless and hateful.

To help you to neither be silent nor loveless, remember Colossians 4:6,  “Let our conversations be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that we may know how to answer everyone.”

To help us be a witness to both truth and grace, please view this series of short videos. They are from Time of Grace, a WELS mass media ministry. They provide keen insights and key gospel imperatives – from wise and godly teachers – on the topic of abortion that you may never have thought about. They provide the answers for anyone who is confused and hungry for both truth and grace.

Remember, laws don’t change hearts, but God’s truth and grace do. May God bless your time in His Word!!!

Click on the resource links below to watch them and feel free to share them with your friends.

May our Creator and Redeemer God be with you!

We give thanks for the opportunity to gather together in public worship.  A few changes may remain, but we are excited that we are very much back to our traditional worship practices.

In light of recent CDC statements and out of love for our neighbor we simply ask you to be aware of different approaches that people might take to their own health and safety.  Trust in the Lord, respect the governing authorities, and show love to each other. 

Let’s celebrate being able to gather together again. Let’s celebrate the joy we experience as a family of believers when we worship together—fellowship with each other—serve together—and take the Lord’s supper side by side. Come and join us for worship as we give thanks to God and encourage one another in our love for God and for each other.

“I rejoiced with those who said to me, let us go to the house of the LORD.”

– Psalm 122:1

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give us meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:22-25.
