Sunday Services

Sunday Mornings at St. Matthew’s is a time we gather as believers for fellowship, prayer, praise, and to hear from God’s Word together.

Our worship services include music and a time of teaching. Our music is a mixture of new music and traditional hymns, and our Pastor teaches every week from the Bible. 

We would love for you to join us on a Sunday morning. We meet at 8:00 AM for worship every Sunday morning at our church building at 121 Kline St.

Hope to see you there!

About Us

St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church is located in the heart of Benton Harbor, Michigan, at the corner of Colfax and Kline. The members of our congregation range from old to young and come from many different countries and cultures. We worship each Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. for an hour long service. Bible study follows after the church service.

Our congregation is Christian, meaning we teach that Jesus Christ came as the Savior of the whole world, to free us from the dangers of hell and sin. This is God’s free gift to us! Our congregation is Lutheran, which means we hold that the Bible is 100% God’s Word, and is therefore 100% perfect. Our congregation is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and is affiliated with Michigan Lutheran High School and Grace Lutheran Grade School, both in St. Joseph, MI.

 

Our Mission & Vision

Preach God’s Word.
Teach Christ’s Love.
Reach all people.

Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20

Latest Message

Run after things that bring you close to God. Run from what doesn’t.

In many ways, disregard for truth, moral relativism, and all of the ambiguity surrounding gender and marriage that is alive and well in today’s society does not help people believe in Jesus.  The devil uses the norms of society against the truths of God’s Word.  Yet, as we look at the Word, we see that if it were not these things, there would be other temptations.  The devil has always used temptations around us and within us to try to lead us from the truth of the Savior to our own understanding.  May God give us the faith to continue to look to him and cling to him as our way to heaven.  “Lord to whom shall we go, you have the words of eternal life?”
