Welcome to St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church. We are a growing church nestled in the heart of the Gault Village neighborhood in Ypsilanti, MI. We are dedicated to the idea of community, the idea that we are stronger and better together. ALL are welcome at St. Matthew’s.
When you come to St. Matthew’s you will discover a wide range of opportunities for spiritual growth and mission. Like most churches you will find opportunities for Sunday School for both youth and adults as well as seasonal evening bible studies.
What makes St. Matthew’s unique are our ministries outside of the expected. In partnership with another community minded church we have a Pub Theology ministry (Doubt on Tap) that meets every Tuesday at 8pm to discuss important and pressing topics face-to-face over a pint. In a world where communication is primarily a function of the internet Doubt on Tap makes the conversation real and teaches us how to have good conversations even with people who we disagree with.
Also our pastor is a bit non-conventional. You will not find our pastor sitting behind his desk in the Pastor’s office. Pastor Mike makes his office amid the coffee shops and restaurants of the Ypsilanti area. This makes him accessible not only to those who worship in our building but to other members of the larger community as well.
In addition to our blossoming youth ministry we have a ministry for single seniors as well. If you are 55+ and single the third Saturday of each month (7pm) is your night to mingle. This lively group hosts game nights, attends community shows, and other fun outings as they seek to do life together.
There is a lot more to discover about our wonderful little church from our Community Dinners to Ypsilanti ComicCon and more as you explore our website, or give Pastor Mike a call, he is always up for a good cup of coffee and friendly conversation. Or you can take the plunge and come and enjoy the worship and fellowship of our church on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. See you there!
