Welcome to St. Matthew’s

Welcome to St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church. We are a growing church nestled in 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 and accepted for who they are at St. Matthew’s. 

When you come to St. Matthew’s you will discover a wide range of opportunities for spiritual growth and mission. You will find opportunities both youth and adults to grow their faith, serve their community, and find fellowship. 

What makes St. Matthew’s unique is our place in the community, Whether its food truck night, our little free pantry, or other community events in the heart of the Gault Village neighborhood, we want to be active with engaging with our neighbors.
