“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

We believe strongly in the importance of Christian giving, or to be more accurate, in giving a portion of our blessings back to God to express our gratitude for everything our Savior has done for us.  The members of St. Matthew’s give regular and generous freewill offerings to carry out our local ministry in Oconomowoc and also support the worldwide mission efforts of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.


We have several options available to make giving to our
church easy, safe, and secure. You can opt to give online, through text messaging, or make an offering during church service.
