Confirmation Sunday

Confirmation Sunday is coming soon! Five young people will be confirmed at St. Matthew on Sunday, May 2nd in our 9:15am service. The service will also be live-streamed to Facebook. Confirmation is a public affirmation of our Christian faith, God's gifts in Baptism, and one's intention to remain steadfast in the Lord's church throughout life. Please pray for Kendalynn, Anna, Brelee, Cade, and Jacob as they are confirmed and take this step in the journey of faith in Christ!

Following our time of singing, we will share some food and fellowship at 5:30pm. If you would like to receive music ahead of time, please text Mary Jo Hill at 608-343-5656 or email Pastor Kory Janneke at We hope to see you for "Spring SING!"

St. Matthew’s Board of Directors and Board of Elders met this week and have made some adjustments to our Covid precautions:

- Wearing masks is encouraged, but not required.

- Coffee will be served in the entryway on Sundays with hand sanitizer provided. (Refreshments will not be served at this time.)

- Children will be welcome to come forward for the children’s message. (Candy will not be distributed at this time.)

- The Lord’s Supper will continue to be offered in a processional manner, rather than in groups.

- We will also continue to provide the option of services live-streamed to Facebook and to the Fellowship Hall.
