What We Believe  

Audio Sermons  

St. Matthew's is a Christ-centered fellowship of believers from many ethnicities and from all ages.  We want to make a difference in our world by sharing the good news of free and complete salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. We worship together on Sundays at 9:30am. All are invited. 

Simplified Worship Service - 2nd or 3rd Tuesday of the Month
At Golfview Development Center - on Golf Road, just west of Potter Road)

Lent Services are on Wednesday at 7:15pm on 2/26, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, and 4/1.


This year, our overall theme for the midweek services in Lent is “The Son of God Goes Forth to War.” The Bible is full of imagery and descriptions of our Savior Jesus as the warrior who fights and defeats sin, death, and Satan. Each service focuses on an aspect of our Savior-Warrior.  God promises us that our Savior-Warrior fights our enemies for us and triumphs over them for us. Our series theme comes from the hymn “The Son of God Goes Forth to War.” We will sing this hymn during each midweek service.


During the six Wednesdays in Lent, you have the chance to hear sermons from pastors in the Chicagoland area.  Each pastor will bring you a message under our midweek theme “The Son of God Goes Forth to War.”
