About Us

Since St. Matthew’s Ev. Lutheran Church was founded in 1922, we have served our members and the Oconomowoc community with the truth of God’s Word.  St. Matthew’s is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. A brief summary of what we believe and teach can be found here.

Christian education has always been an important part of St. Matthew’s ministry, and we have operated a Lutheran elementary school for almost a century. From very humble beginnings with a single teacher in a one room school, St. Matthew’s now offers a Christ-centered education for students in 3K through 8th grade.  Our school is enrolled in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program and is also accredited by WELSSA.

St. Matthew’s newest educational ministry is First Steps Child Care Center, which is set to open its doors in the summer of 2018. First Steps offers child care for children ages six weeks to 5 years. We also offer before and after school care and summer care for students in 3K through 8th grade.

Beginning in the summer of 2018, St. Matthew’s will operate its ministries on two sites. Worship services and weekly Bible studies will continue to be held at our 818 W. Wisconsin Ave campus. Our school, preschool and child care programs will be located at our new campus at 1650 Brown Street.

There is a place for people of all ages at St. Matthew’s, from Preschool Power Hour to OWLS, our senior group, and every time of life in between. We would love to meet you at one of our community events or weekly worship opportunities. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
