Tuesday Night Worship Discontinued:

Tuesday Night Worship will no longer be held until further notice.  We are grateful for those who made use of the service throughout the years and we are thankful for those who served, however, due to an overall lack of attendance we thought it best to cancel this service and concentrate our ministry efforts elsewhere.  We invite our members and visitors to please join us for worship on Sunday mornings.  If you are unable to attend on Sunday, we encourage you to make use of our streaming services.  You are able to watch the service live or you can go back and view the service when you are able, as all our services are    archived on our YouTube page.  Search for St. Matthew’s Danube on YouTube or visit our website and click the Livestream tab.

Getting back to the basics can be a refreshing exercise.  Join us for worship this summer for a series of messages that takes us back the basics of our faith.   Join us for the sermon series: The Basics of the Christian Faith, One Word at a Time: Atonement, Righteousness, Reconciliation, Reversal, Buried, Battling, Longing, Praying, Chosen, Inseparable, Roots, Grafted, Awe, Sacrifice, Love, Freedom.  Read archived sermons or watch any services that you missed online.  Visit or

Hog Roast and Outdoor Worship Service:

Our annual hog roast and outdoor worship service will be held on August 6 in Renville. Like last year this will be one day event, however, the worship service will be held an hour later to better accommodate the day’s schedule.  This will be a joint worship service, as members of our 4 area congregations will come together for worship in Renville.  The worship service will be held next to St. John’s Lutheran Church on their south lawn.  Worship is at 10 am with the meal to follow. Pastor Walta will be our guest musician and will play for the worship service and a short concert.  Please remember that there will be no worship services held at our usual locations, but this is an opportunity for our members to come together along with friends and neighbors for this special worship opportunity.
