Church at a Distance for Children

Even though we are unable to gather in person for church, Church School and Preschool, St. Matthew's has lots of ways for families with young children to stay connected to God during this trying time.  The videos below are being created for our Church School and Preschool, but, of course, the messages are for all ages and we hope they can help you to know Christ and make Him known even now.


Sunday Worship Livestream:  One silver living in all this is that famlies are able to worship at home together right now.  We invite you to join us for the live-streamed worship every Sunday at 10 a.m.  CLICK HERE for Sunday's link, complete with a bulletin.


Church School@Home:    Church School continues even if we can't physically be at St. Matthew's.  Each week on Thursday, Drew sends out a video focused on that week's Church School lesson.  CLICK HERE to view the ChurchSchool@Home.


Holy Week@Home:  For Holy Week, Drew has five brief and interactive videos for children for each of the specials days of Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Day.  CLICK HERE to view HolyWeek@Home videos.


St. Matthew's Songbook:  On Monday of each week, Church School and preschool parents receive an email with a new video and mp3 of a church song for children to sing along with and hopefully bring some musical joy into the home.  Words for the songs can be found HERE.  To sing along with the most recent and past songs, CLICK HERE.


St. Matthews Preschool Vitual Chapel:  Tradionally, John and Drew lead the chapel service for St. Matthew's Preschool on Thursday mornings.  Even though the Preschool is closed right now, chapels still goes on!  CLICK HERE to view the most recent and past virtual preschool chapel services, complete with songs, prayers and a message!.
