Welcome to St. Matthew’s

Welcome to St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church–in the heart of Gault Village (Ypsilanti)–a place of hope, healing, and belonging, for ALL our neighbors!

All are welcome and accepted for who they are at St. Matthew’s. 

When you come to St. Matthew’s you will discover family you never knew you had. Because we are loved…we love. We see loving God, loving one another, and loving ALL our neighbors as the most essential point of being a church. Love is what fuels our mission and love is the goal of all we do. Come experience and grow in God’s love and find hope, healing, and belonging with us!

What makes St. Matthew’s unique is our location in the community. Whether it’s our neighborhood connection events, our little free pantry, our community partnerships, or our church gatherings, we are here to shine the heart of God’s love across Gault Village and the greater Ypsilanti region. We would love to meet you!

Join us

Our worship gatherings are rooted in liturgical practices and all are invited to participate. Children are welcome too! Join us on Sundays at 9:30am for our worship service–both in-person or virtually, through our Facebook page.

Lenten Sermon Series

While we are convinced that the Church is the hope of the world, the Church has also done much to wound the world. We’ll discuss the ways that we have hurt others and how we can be agents of love and healing going forward. We’ll also see how Jesus was hurt by the “organized religion” of his day.


You can support St. Matts and its ministry through online giving, either as a one time gift or repeating donation:


Community Events

Egg Hunt!

Attention Gault Village families with young kids (through 6th grade)! We are hosting our 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8th, at 10am on the lawn! Please join us!

Easter Worship

Holy Week is right around the corner! We’d love to invite you to commemorate Holy Week with us in any way that fits your schedule, but we REALLY want to invite you to be a part of our Easter Sunday worship gathering! If you don’t regularly attend a community of faith, please consider worshipping with us on Easter (our gatherings are at 9:30am)!
Parents: Kids are welcome! We’ll have kid activities, a children’s story during the service, and a “family room” if you want to listen in and yet need to be interactive with your children!
Also, we’ll have a free pancake breakfast at 8:00am if you want to come earlier and make a full morning of it!
Looking forward to celebrating the Resurrection of Christ with you!

Join us on April 15th and bring your current project: we have knitters, scrapbookers, quilters, and painters here at St. Matt’s that are getting back together “post-pandemic” – we’d enjoy meeting our neighbors & making new friends. Stop in and visit, stay for a few hours, or for the day! All donations go to local area missions projects. RSVP here.
