Lunchtime Ministry (LTM) provides a warm meal, hospitality, and community for our neighbors who are homeless, marginally housed, or just hungry. LTM has been serving food to hundreds of guests every week with the help of dozens of volunteers from 8 AM to 12 PM, Monday through Thursday.

 

For the next few weeks, LTM will discontinue our sit-down services and instead hand out coffee, sandwiches and to-go food at the door. This is a very challenging time for our guests, so donations are needed and welcome. You can go to our Amazon Wish List to see what is needed:

The community’s generosity has been a real blessing. Thank you all! 

Celebrate Easter with your kids with these fun crafts to color and hang up on your fridge (or windows).

Message from
Pastor Gary

Each day at 5:00 pm, the church bell high in the steeple of St. Matthew Trinity, is being rung. In the olden days, congregations always rang the church bell when they said the Lord’s Prayer as a way to invite those who had to work in the fields to stop and pray along. Ringing the bell reminds the community that we have not forgotten them. It also invites the community to join us in prayer or meditation during these challenging times. This is for people of our faith, different faiths, or no faith. 

Donate to SMT Center
 

Renovation Project of Washington Street
Parish Center

The SMT Center will serve as a beacon of hope, healing and wholeness for the entire Hoboken community.

The renovation is entering its final phases and needs additional funds to realize completion. Please consider donating to the SMT Center through the BRICK fundraising campaign.

Once completed, the newly renamed SMT Center will be a space for the people of Hoboken to heal, learn and grow together through hosting 12-Step groups, healthy-lifestyle seminars, community lectures, group fitness meeting spots, youth events, live music and more. The revitalized SMT Center will be a step towards a more united Hoboken community.

A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN BE
TRUE TO YOURSELF

We are always welcoming, never judging. 

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

Our congregation comes from a variety of backgrounds, welcoming those who are gay and straight, homeless and housed, single, married, widowed, or divorced. The Romanesque-style church was built in 1877 and installed with a majestic George Jardine & Son Tracker
Pipe Organ.

CHILDREN MINISTRIES

God's Word gives spiritual growth. Children ages 3 through 12 have the opportunity to learn about the Bible and how to love God through Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Confirmation class is offered for 7th & 8th graders and a youth group is available for 7th to 12th grade students.

SERVICES

Services are every Sunday at
10:30 AM. Our faith is grounded in the Bible and dedicated to proclaiming the Good News of God’s love to our community through our worship and ministries. We welcome you to join us whether you a long-time Hobokenite, refugee, or recent resident.

MEET OUR VIBRANT COMMUNITY
OF FRIENDS, FAMILIES & KIDS

We are looking forward to meeting you.

 HELP US TO SPREAD
LOVE AND FAITH 

We believe God calls us to work toward tithing and practice first fruits giving as a way or reminding ourselves that God has given us everything we possess. Set up a regularly re-occuring or one time gift to further the work of God in the world.

ABOUT US

St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church is a compassionate community that invites all people to experience God’s grace through faith, service, music, and teaching.

We envision a world where all people are fed, brought into community, and experience the wideness of God’s compassion.
