Easter FAQ’s

What Can I Expect?
If Easter is your first time at St. Matthew’s, you are our honored guest.

Where do I go when I get there?
Our ushers  will meet you as you’re walking to the building and can show you where to find the sanctuary, restrooms, and any other places you might need.

What Should I wear?
Don’t feel like you have to dress up. Most people dress casually, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

How long is the service?
Services last about one hour. Our services include singing, reading scripture, praying, a biblically based Easter sermon, and end with Holy Eucharist.  If you want to check out our preaching, check out our Youtube channel.

We’d love it if you saved time to introduce yourself to the greeters or priests after the service. You are a very important person to us! We’d love to meet you, answer any questions you may have.

What if I have an infant or toddler?
No worries! Everyone is welcome in to worship.  If you would rather have some time to worship without your infant and toddler, they are always welcome in the nursery.

Is there something for kids on Easter?
Easter is a worship Sunday when we encourage families to celebrate together. We will provide special Easter activity booklets & crayons to help keep your youngest family members engaged during worship. Childcare is available for ages three and under.

Can I attend if I’m _____________?
Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted: divorced, single parent, broke, LGBTQ, recovering addict, atheist, skeptic, etc. Everyone is welcome at St. Matthew’s.   So come as you are, and we’ll see you at Easter!
