Read or watched archived sermons online.
Luther Movie Update:
The reshowing of the Luther movie has been canceled. Unfortunately, the companies involved decided that they were not going to grant a reshowing of the Luther movie, Return to Grace: The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther. While it is disappointing that the reshowing will no longer take place, we were thankful for those who came to the original outing and hope you enjoyed the movie that we watched that night. We are also thankful for those who showed interest in seeing he movie at this second outing. Return to Grace: The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther will be available on DVD from Northwestern Publishing in late October.
Streaming Services Unavailable for a Few Weeks:
For the next few weeks we will not be able to offer the livestreaming of our services. Our computer which runs this program is being repaired. We are very grateful for the ability to stream our services when things are working properly and we pray that they may be the case again very soon.
As we repair the streaming services, Pastor Kuschel will be recording his sermons and posting them online through a podcast. The link to this podcast will be shared on St. Matthew’s Facebook page on Sunday afternoons. Use and share this podcast and let Pastor Kuschel know if you would like to see this continued even after the streaming services are repaired.
Happy 50th Anniversary to Grace and Lee Gluth:
Congratulations! May God continue to bless your marriage bond.
