Virtual Worship

When the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country in March 2020, St. Matthew Trinity, like churches everywhere, took the best course of action it could to protect our own health, the health of those whom we love, and the health of those whom we are charged to love by moving worship online. It has taken some getting used to and truthfully, we are still figuring it out. All are welcome to join us via Zoom by accessing the link on the home page. You can also access a live stream of the service on St. Matthew Trinity's Facebook page. Below is a list of our past virtual worship services in case you missed it live or would like to rewatch.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from a worship service at SMT?

During the school year a typical Sunday service is held at 10:30 am in the beautiful, historic sanctuary.  It is approximately one hour long and includes a reading from the Bible, Sermon, and Holy Communion.  During the summer we worship at 10:00 am downstairs in Parish Hall and explore a more casual, informal style of worship.

Are children welcome?

Yes!  We love having families and kids at SMT.  Children are welcome to color, play in the prayground, and come forward for the children's message.  We have a changing table for young children downstairs in the nursery and you are welcome to breast or bottle feed your baby wherever you need  - including the pews in the sanctuary during worship.

What should I wear?

Some people dress up for worship and wear a suit and tie or nice dress.  Many other people dress fairly casually and wear jeans and a t-shirt or work-out gear.  Either option is completely fine and up to you.  During the summer we recommend you wear clothes that are cool (shorts, sundresses, etc.).    


Is your building ADA accessible?

We have a chair lift people can use to access the sanctuary.  Unfortunately, due to the age of the building, bathrooms are not fully ADA compliant.

How do I arrange to have a wedding in the sanctuary?

It is our prayer that your wedding be a beautiful, truly Christ-centered ceremony that will be the beginning of a wonderful life together. For more information, see our wedding policy. Contact the church office (T: 201-659-4499, E: Office@StMatthewTrinity.org) to arrange a meeting with our Pastor Gary. 


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.
