St. Matthew’s Ev. Lutheran Church has been in God’s Grace for over 100 years. Since we were 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 opened 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 5K through 6th grade.
Worship services will be held in our school gym until construction of the new sanctuary is completed in late Summer of 2023. Weekly Bible studies will be held at 1650 Brown St.
